The living warned to be prepared for death.
A sermon, occasioned by the death of six young persons, who were drowned in a pond in Wilbraham, Masschusetts, April 29, 1799: and delivered May 2, when the funeral of five of them was attended.
By Charles Backus, A.M. Pastor of a church in Somers, Connecticut. ; To which is subjoined, two discourses delivered in Wilbraham May 12, '99, on the same occasion. By Rev. Mr. Witter, Pastor of the North Church in Wilbraham. ; Together with an appendix, giving some account of the particulars of the melancholy event.

Published 1799 by [by T. Ashley] in Printed at Springfield [Mass.] .
Written in English.

Edition Notes

The two discourses by Ezra Witter, "Resignation to the afflictive dispensations of Divine Providence ..." (11 p., 2nd count) and "Gratitude and obedience to the preserver of men ..." (12 p., 3d count) have separate title pages; the imprint for each names T. Ashley as printer. They were presumably printed before Backus's sermon; an errata note on p. 16 of the Backus sermon corrects errors in the second Witter discourse. Witter's discourses may also have been issued separately.
