Roberts Revival Literature no. 4393; see also 4392. "Thomas Prince [1687-1758] was born in Sandwich, Massachusetts, May 15, 1687. At Harvard, where he graduated in 1709, he was dubbed a 'praying student.' After a stay of some years abroad, he joined Joseph Sewall in the Pastorate of Old South Church, Boston, in 1718 and remained there for the next forty years. When Whitefield came to Boston and the clergy were badly divided, Prince became one of the strongest supporters of his ministry and gladly faced the scorn of men like Charles Chauncy in order to support and advance the cause of true religion. As a chronicler of revivals, no one in New England surpassed Thomas Prince. The above [pamphlet] is a delightful article reprinted from The Christian History.
Also listed as no. 6043 in Roberts, Whitefield in Print: An Annotated Bibliography. "Prince regarded Whitefield as the chief instrument in giving the general public a more spiritual direction. He had the utmost confidence in him and was willing to be derided because of his staunch support."
