Description: Cumings, Henry. A SERMON PREACHED BEFORE HIS HONOR THOMAS CUSHING, ESQ; LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR, THE HONORABLE THE COUNCIL, AND THE TWO BRANCHES OF THE GENERAL COURT OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS MAY 28, 1783. BEING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE GENERAL ELECTION. Boston: T. and J. Fleet, 1783. 8vo. 55, [1 blank] pp. Stitched tract, with the half title (detached.) Light foxing and consistent age-tone, edges untrimmed and with some minor chipping/fraying, early ink to title, several instances of faded marginal water-stains. Overall quite good with numerous unopened leaves, untrimmed, much as issued. ******************************************** First edition. An unusually interesting sermon, preached just after the close of the Revolutionary War, with British troops awaiting their return home from American soil. Cumings opines that Americans who joined the British against their countrymen should forfeit their citizenship and property. He argues that a continued federation of the States is essential. The result is an interesting review of American society at the end of the War. [Evans 17899; Sabin 17896]
