Collection Scope and Content Note

The Joseph Buckminster sermon consists of a single bound manuscript sermon (16 pp.) delivered by the Congregational minister on September 29, 1786. The sermon, entitled "Faith our Victory over the World," concerns 1 John 5:4 and the role of faith in dealing with the pressures of daily life. It elaborates on this theme, and fervently offers hope to the congregation that they "should rest in Hope" and "obtain the Victory over the disorders and commotions of [the] prison Ground" (p. 16). The cover of the sermon contains a note that the 103-year-old manuscript was presented to William C. Todd by one of Buckminster's descendants on February 7, 1889.
