    Richard Saunders. George Hammond, preface. [Greek Text:] Angelographia Sive Pneumata Leiturgika [sic] Pneumatologia: Or, A discourse of Angels: Their Nature and Office, or Ministry. Wherein is shewed what excellent Creatures they are, and that they are the prime Instruments of God's Providence, and are imploy'd about Kingdoms, and Churches, and single Persons, and that under Jesus Ministring Spirits for sinful Men.

With a Practical Improvement of the Particulars handled, and of the whole Doctrine of Angels, especially for the promoting of an Angelical Life.

    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.
