1. J. Jay Dana, The Acceptable Fast: A Sermon Delivered in the Village Church in Cummington, Mass., on the Day of the National Fast, September 26, 1861 (Northampton, MA: Metcalf & Co., 1861). (20 p.)

Sermon on the text, “Is not this fast that I have chosen, to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke,” (Isaiah 58: 6), in which the pastor advocates the abolition of slavery. (Mr. Stone’s copious marginal notes in pencil on pages 17-20 are illegible.)
