12mo. Plain grey/blue wrappers. 12pp. Very good. Slightest bit of age toning; mild sporatic foxing (mainly to plain outer wrappers). Probable sole edition of this interesting fine-print list of this church's beliefs. The lengthy list of church members includes the brother of famed explorer Stephen Harriman Long (1784-1864), ENOCH LONG, his wife ABIGAIL LONG and other family members. Enoch long was a noted resident of Alton, Illinois and noted early Alton settler who in 1837 headed a small militia unit whose job it was to protect abolitionist Elijah Lovejoy from the "angry mob." They failed and Lovejoy was shot dead. Though not so noted, this pamphlet came from Enoch Long's personal papers. A delightful New England church item with an interesting background. Not in Sabin.
