There is no information concerning Mr. Porter, Mr. Spilsburey, or Mr. Carver, the contributors to this volume.
This bound volume consists of ninety-two pages of handwritten hymns,
sermons, and one poem composed between 1705 and 1706. Mr. Porter
authored sixty hymns, with Mr. Spilsburey and Mr. Carver each contributing
one. The two sermons were written by Porter and Spilsburey.
The first is a Christmas sermon and the second was preached at the funeral
of Mrs. Porter. The poem was composed by Mr. Porter and begins each
stanza with the letters A through Z. The compositions are evangelical
and take their subjects chiefly from biblical verses.
