Chapbook # 17 in a bound collection of 17 chapbooks

Abstract

This is a single poem with no title page that puts forward the argument that child baptism, practiced by most churches at this time, is without scriptural confirmation and should not be practiced; instead it suggests to its readers that they should dedicate themselves to the faith and study of scripture and to raise children to be devout rather than hoping water will protect them. The last page appears to be from another chapbook, but is scanned as part of this chapbook on the basis of theme, and contains the song/poem “The Land We Live In,” in which the author gives thanks to God for the beauty of their native land. This chapbook is part of a collection of chapbooks produced in Aberdeen which have been bound together in this volume.
