A chart for seamen; exhibited in a sermon, preached in Beverly, March 18th, 1804. Particularly addressed to seamen
Joshua Cushing, Salem 1804 - First edition, 8vo; pp. 23; removed, trimmed along the top margin, just touching two page numbers; sewing broken and leaves becoming detached; enclosed in a protective cloth folder. Taking his subject from Matthew 8:25 ("Lord, save us; we perish"), Emerson attempts to show "that persons in peril of waters should feel their dependence upon Christ" because "they must perish, unless he is pleased to save them." Emerson also suggests that seamen should lead holy lives and ought continually to give thanks to God and that and vessels should "maintain social prayer." Shaw & Shoemaker 6245; Tapley, p. 392. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
