CommentsEleven discourses by the influential New England clergyman William Ellery Channing (1780-1842), inscribed on the front free endpaper to his peer in the clergy Joseph Tuckerman (1778-1840): "Joseph Tuckerman / from his sincere friend / Wm. E. Channing." See the DAB for both Channing and Tuckerman. Tipped to the front free endpaper is a note to Channing: "My dear Brother, I have gone over your first discourse. Are the changes suggested of sufficient importance in your view of things to make it desirable that I should in the same manner go over the volume? If not, say so. If they are, say so. Ever Truly, J.T." The first discourse is heavily corrected in pencil, but the subsequent ones are not.
