Chapter Summary

With the exception of Caleb Watson's sermon on January 17, and the Woodbridge sermon of February 1, this chapter is built around Isaac Foster's sermon series taken from Hebrews: chapter 2 verse 3. The first sermon in the chapter is also the first in the notebook from Hartford's schoolmaster Caleb Watson. Watson's sermon is included in the chapter because he and Foster preached on the same day. The opening text for the Caleb Watson sermon that follows is from Malachi, which played an important role in Puritan theology because of its prominent covenant themes. It is also an interesting text within the framework of late seventeenth century New England, and the declension of the Puritan spirit that prevailed. Caleb Watson's sermon is the first in the notebook to implore Hartford to resist the declension of New England.
