    More Information: Abbadie, Jacques (or James), D.D. 1654?-1727, dean of Killaloe, preacher, and christian apologist. "Abbadie's residence at Berlin was varied by several visits which he paid to Holland in 1684, 1686, and 1688, chiefly for the purpose of superintending the printing of several of his works. One of the most important of them he had already contemplated at Paris; it bore the title of 'Traite de la Verite de la Religion chretienne,' 2 vols. 8vo, Rotterdam, 1684. The book went through a vast number of editions and was translated into several languages, an English version, by Henry Lussan, appearing in 1694...The entire apology for Christianity formed by the three volumes of the 'Traite,' which combated severally the heresies of atheism, deism, and Socinianism, was received with unanimous praise by protestants and catholics."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
