THE following sermon appears to have been preached by Dr Manton on occasion of the death of a Christian lady. It was reprinted in 1694, in the following circumstances:—Dr Manton’s daughter was Mrs Terry. She died in 1689. Her husband afterwards married a daughter of Mr Thomas Burroughs. This second wife died in 1693. On occasion of her death a small volume was published, containing a brief account of the two ladies, this sermon, and a number of papers from the pen of the second Mrs Terry. It is from this volume that the sermon is now reprinted. We have not seen a copy of the original edition.
