Very rare sermon by Thomas Andros [1759-1845]. He enlisted as a privateer in 1781, but was captured and confined on the prison ship, Jersey in New York. He escaped and his account of the time is an important period history. He then studied theology and became pastor at Berkley. He was vehemently anti-Federalist, calling Thomas Jefferson and Madison traitors. He was suspicious of any encroachment on States Rights.
