1 A Sermon by Rev. Samuel Cooke, on May 6, 1771, ‘delivered on occasion of ye sudden death of James Robbins—drowned at Medford, April 30, 1771,’ No. 1282—Text, Mark 13: 35, 36, contains the following:—

‘We have a loud call in the sudden death of one the last week, whose parents are with us, and with whom we heartily sympathize. One brought up with us from his youth—one who long met with us, and was improved to call us together in this house of God,—one inoffensive in his behavior, and we hope a true fearer of God, the thread of whose life was cut off in a moment. Be ye also ready, is the voice of Christ to us all, young and old. Let us awake to righteousness and sin not.’
