Boston: Saxton & Peirce, 1841. First edition. Lacking wrappers, removed from a bound volume, 64 pp. Record of a controversy in Boston newspapers over a sermon given by Theodore Parker at the ordination of Charles C. Shackford at the Hawes Place Congregational Society. The conservatives (orthodox) challenge ministers on the ordination committee (Unitarian) to endorse Parker's remarks, but they won't, and wish it would all just go away. The Parker sermon was printed as "A Discourse of the Transient and Permanent in Christianity", 1840, and it alienated almost everybody, asserting that Christ was just a man who need not have existed in order for Christianity to be true. A Good copy.
Title: The South-Boston Unitarian Ordination.
