No. 1288 in Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography.

The author is inspired by the coming Millennium where the world will be converted to Christ, and this hope propels him to promote revivals. He references the great Revival of the 18th century and quotes at length from Jonathan Edwards. He also calls to the readers' attention the then-present revivals in the United States, at Albany and elsewhere.

John Mockett Cramp (1796-1881), b. St. Peter's, England; d. Wolfville, Nova Scotia. He was a Baptist minister, educated at Stepney College, London. He was ordained pastor of the Baptist Chapel in Dean Street, Southwark, in 1818, and from 1827 to 1842 was assistant to his father, the Rev. Thomas Cramp, at the Baptist church in St. Peter's. In 1844 he was appointed president of the Baptist College in Montreal, Canada. He was afterwards president of Accadia College in Nova Scotia, and after his retirement in 1869 devoted himself to theological literature, both as an author of books and as an editor of several periodicals.
