Daniel Dodge (1775-1851), "...at the time pastor of First Baptist Church of Wilmington, Delaware, issued A Selection of Hymns and Psalms in 1808, combining Watts and Rippon to make a volume more convenient for its users. The addition of new literature is noted in the description on its title page: 'principally from Watts & Rippon: together with Originals.' The book contains 428 hymns and thirteen doxologies, and duplicate's Rippon's topical organization. Dodge indicated the source from which he had taken each text, naming either the section and hymn number from Watts, the number in 'J.R.'s Selection,' or another collection." - Music & Richardson, "I Will Sing the Wondrous Story", p. 158.
