Not in Roberts. This has an article, pp. 109-122: "Letters of Warning... On Revivals." In it the author argues for true revival, one that includes the renewal of religious fervor among believers, and is achieved through the preaching of the truth, and against spurious "revivals," those in which converts are sought by any means necessary, and their true spiritual state is not considered. Warnings against the use of the "anxious seat," wild enthusiasm, and shallow "converts."

Other articles of note include those on Slavery, Ruling Elders, American Bible Society, Expositions of Scripture, Decalogue on Temperance, Missions, Psalmody, Obituary, Reports of Presbytery, &c.

David MacDill (1790-1870), born in SC; died in Monmouth, IL. His father was a Revolutionary War veteran, serving under Colonel Horry. In 1806 the family moved to what was then the far west, and settled in Preble County, Ohio. MacDill studied at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY, and at the Associate Presbyterian Theological Seminary in NY, delivering the Valedictory Address to his graduating class in 1817.  He was the pastor of Presbyterian churches in Ohio, the editor of The Christian Intelligencer and Evangelical Guardian, and for over twenty years was a member of the board of trustees of Miami University. – see A History and Biographical Cyclopaedia of Butler County, Ohio p. 155.
