    Wolcott, Roger: A LETTER TO THE REVEREND MR. NOAH HOBART. [Boston: Printed by Green & Russell, 1761]. 24pp, half title, stitched, untrimmed and uncut. Near Fine.

    In this pamphlet, writes DAB, Wolcott "wrote with a directness and idiom rare in his day, and with a sturdy natural wisdom that explains the veneration in which he was held." Wolcott had been deputy-governor and then colonial governor of Connecticut, as well as a judge and chief justice. Among his other accomplishments, he wrote the first volume of verse published in Connecticut. Wolcott argues that the "New England Congregational Churches are, and always have been, Consociated Churches; and their Liberties greater and better founded, in their Platform of Church Discipline agreed to at Cambridge, 1648, than what is contained in the Agreement at Say-Brook, 1708."
    FIRST EDITION. Evans 9041. XX DAB 446. VI Appleton 587.
