The first edition.

Very scarce work. 

This pamphlet is comprised of a discourse delivered by Timothy Dwight on the subject of the National Fast, delivered on August 20th, 1812 in Yale College Chapel.

Timothy Dwight was an American educator, minister and theologian, being a prominent member of staff at Yale College, becoming the eighth president of the institution in 1795.

This text was published at the request of the students, being intended as a supplement for Dwight's previous lecture delivered on the same subject.
