Sida 165 - ... the heathen for an inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for a possession.
Sida 222 - When about the age of sixteen, I composed a manuscript calling in question the validity of the idolatrous system of the Hindoos.

Sida 37 - An Appeal to the Christian Public, in defence of the 'Precepts of Jesus...
Sida 178 - Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord ; they rest from their labours, and their works follow them...
Sida xiv - Theology, establishing the Unity of the Supreme Being, and that he alone is the Object of Propitiation and Worship.
