Conversation in a Boat, between Two Seamen

Conversation in a Boat, between Two Seamen by Richard Marks.Conversation in a Boat, between Two Seamen

“The ‘Repulse’ was as noble a seventyfour (sailing ship), and the crew were as fine fellows, as ever swam salt water, or went into action.” Two of the sailors sat and talked—Harry Williams, who is a Christian, and Tom Brown, who does not understand religious ways. They discuss the questions: Is the Bible true? and How do we know? “Bad men could not write a book so plainly condemning all sin. Good men would not have deceived mankind by pretending that an invention of their own was a divine revelation.” Tom’s understands his sinful heart, and a need to be born again.

A Treatise on Self-Knowledge

A Treatise on Self-KnowledgeA Treatise on Self-Knowledge by John Mason.

John Mason states: “Self-Knowledge is the subject of this Treatise; a subject which, the more we think of it, the more important and extensive it appears: so important, indeed, that every branch of it seems absolutely necessary to the right government of the life and temper.” This concept is woven into of many spiritual pursuits like relationships, knowing and using talents, knowing weaknesses, confessing pride, temptations to avoid, thinking on the excellent, examining yourselves, proving your own work, and dealing with peaceful prosperity and adverse provocation. “Self-Knowledge,” John Mason’s most notable work, inspires thinking on this often disregarded subject. This edition contains the quotations and the study questions that were found in some earlier editions.

Complete Title: A Treatise on Self-Knowledge Showing the Nature and Benefit of that Important Science, and the Way to Attain It: Intermixed with Various Reflections and Observations on Human Nature.

The History of Mr. Fantom

The History of Mr. FantomThe History of Mr. Fantom: The New-Fashioned Philosopher and His Man William by Hannah More

Mr. Fantom took up studying popular philosophy as a way to “draw public notice and distinguish himself” in society. His mind was filled with vain imaginations and grandiose plans that he espoused at his hangout called the Cat and Bagpipes. However, Mr. Trueman asked him to do good and challenged him to offer simple help to someone nearby. This idea was simply too mundane for such a high minded fellow who was solving the world’s problems, so he did nothing about it. This story unfolds in a tense debate between these two different outlooks.
This chapbook was written to counteract the influences of people such as Thomas Paine, who wrote “Rights of Man” and “Age of Reason” that were widely circulated during this period, in cheap editions, and were regarded as a negative influence.
