    Townsend, Jonathan: MINISTERS, AND OTHER CHRISTIANS EXHORTED TO BE FELLOW-HELPERS TO THE TRUTH. IN A SERMON PREACH'D AT THE DESIRE, AND IN THE PRESENCE OF THE MINISTERS OF THE PROVINCE OF THE MASSACHUSETTS-BAY IN NEW-ENGLAND, AT THEIR ANNUAL CONVENTION IN BOSTON, JUNE 1ST 1758. Boston: 1758. 22pp, bound in library card boards. No half title. Good+. A frank assertion of ministerial authority over the mass of commoners. Those who are "in no public Ecclesiastical station" should refrain from "invading the Priests office, or assuming to themselves that work, rule, and power which Christ has assign'd, and given to the stewards of his house. The ministry is not a business common to all: it is peculiar to an appointed order of men who are seperated (sic) unto the Gospel of God." FIRST EDITION.
