Scope and Content

Baxter’s postscript to the author of a sermon, who argued that the law of infant–membership was repealed. Written by an unknown hand and subscribed ‘RB’. Directed ‘For Mr Tombs’. Possibly a reply to (DWL/RB/1/64).

‘Sir Though you tell me that it were [a foolish thing] for you to goe about to prove the repeal of a transient fact, such as you imagine was the cause of Infant Church membership yet I understand by the notes of a Sermon of yours.’
