    Osgood, David: A DISCOURSE, DELIVERED ON THE DAY OF ANNUAL THANKSGIVING, NOVEMBER 19, 1795. Boston: 1795. 32pp, half title. Recent marbled wrappers. Minor foxing. Very Good. From the story of Noah, to the beauty and regularity of natural events, to an approval of the nation's course and its "unrivalled character." He notes, "the great principle of union observable throughout the material system, would also appear in the rational and moral world." He opposes the general "licentiousness," and ends with a sophisticated discussion of the state of relations with England and the political aspects of the recent treaty. FIRST EDITION. Evans 29250. Not in Jenkins.
