This booklet is an interesting, first-hand account of the events and characters involved in the First Great Awakening as it occurred in Boston.  Written by Thomas Prince in 1743, you can read about him here

I found this 1823 reprint many years ago in a used book store (Friday Harbor maybe?).  Although one can find scanned copies of it on the internet, I have taken the time to OCR and make it available as a Personal Book for Logos users.  I have kept the original pagination and corrected all OCR errors plus a very few obvious misspellings.  I have not added any PB tags or hyperlinks.

Thank you! I'm interested in the history of Christianity in New England, so I'm happy to add this to my collection.

JRS:

Thanks for your work.  Without meaning disrespect, I chose to edit the file so that it is more in line with Logos formatting (text size, page numbers, footnotes, etc.)

I needed to do it to make it usable for my own purposes and thought I would share the edits with others who might find it helpful.

 Happy to make it available and, please feel free to format it any way you want.  I only tried to keep it as close to the original as I could for the sake of anyone who might want to cite it.  

Fascinating to read the first hand accounts, isn't it?  I've been to Boston but ony on business ... some day I'd like to take my time and do a walking tour.

  Some day I'd love to do a walking tour of Boston.

it is an interesting city and pretty easy to walk - at least the older, historic part. Hope you can get the opportunity.
