Content: Title continues: ...chaplain to the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon, &c. &c., who made his exit from this transitory state, to dwell in the celestial realms of bliss, on Lord's-day, 30th of September, 1770, when he was seiz'd with a fit of the asthma, at Newbury-Port, near Boston, New-England. In which is a condolatory address to his truly noble benefactress the worthy and pious Lady Huntingdon; and the orphan-children in Georgia, who, with many thousands are left, by the death of this great man, to lament the loss of a father, friend, and benefactor. By Phillis, a servant girl, of 17 years of age, belonging to Mr. J. Wheatley, of Boston:--She has been but 9 years in this country from Africa.
