Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography no. 793. "A precious account of God's dealings in the later part of the Great Awakening."

Samuel Buell (1716-1798), b. Coventry, CT; d. East Hampton, Long Island. Dr. Buell graduated Yale College in 1741, and preached in various places including at Northampton, where met Thomas Prince and Jonathan Edwards. Prince wrote of this time, when Buell preached daily in his meeting-house, that "there were very extraordinary effects of Mr. Buell's labours; the people were exceedingly moved, crying out in great numbers in the meeting house, and great part of the congregation commonly staying in the house of God for hours after the public service."  In 1743 he was ordained as an evangelist and in 1746 he received a unanimous call to the pulpit of the church in East Hampton, Long Island. He was instrumental in the revivals that occurred in East Hampton in the years 1764, 1785, and 1791. "He is extensively known, not only by his general influence but by his writings, particularly by a Narrative of the great revival of religion which occurred among his people in 1764. He received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Dartmouth College in 1791." - Sprague, Annals vol. 3. See Roberts 792.
