Chauncy served with the First Church in Boston for most of his life and became one of the most influential clergyman in New England. On behalf of the SPCK, this sermon provides a great deal of information on missionary work among the Mohawks, an exhortation for such work to continue, and derides the "popish corruption" visited on the Indians. Chauncy was later a firm supporter of the American Revolution, which he promoted through sermons and pamphlets. Sabin 12331; Evans 9088.
