Boston: Printed by T. Fleet, . 1732 - 45pp. Dbd., remnants of old binder on spine. Very light foxing and soiling. Very good. Lacks the half title. In a half morocco box. A relatively scarce early sermon proclaiming the righteousness of military preparedness, and the compatibility between God and guns. "Neither is the profession of religion in the least inconsistent with a military spirit, and the art of war: The most holy and wise of all men have practiced war, and have been famous for their valour and achievements therein, as Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David and others." The name of New England hero Capt. John Lovewell, who fell in battle with the Indians at Piggwackett in 1725, is invoked. Peabody was pastor of the church at Natick. An interesting sermon.
