Not in Roberts, although the volume for 1822 is mentioned. This periodical began in 1793 and some form of it continued until 1904. It was aimed at Calvinists within the evangelical movement in Great Britain and was supported by both churchmen and independents. It strongly supported evangelism and revivals, as well as giving thoughtful articles in theology, biography, missionary society reports, book reviews, &c.

Of revival interest in this volume:

An Extract from a Letter from the Rev. Dr. Ashbel Green, of Philadelphia, to the Rev. John Saltern, of Bridgeport, dated July 23, 1803;

Extract of a Letter from the Rev. Dr. Wm. Rogers, of Philadelphia - "A great many were brought to cry out under a sense of guilt; others were made to shout aloud...";

Extract from the Appendix of Rev. H. Kollock's sermon preached before the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church - "that in the bounds of these Synods, comprehending parts of the States of Pensylvania [sic], Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, there has for some time past, and still continues to be, one of the most wonderful displays of divine power, in the conversion of sinners, that perhaps has been witnessed since the apostolic age.";

Extract from a Letter from the Rev. Evan John, Minister of Worthington, in the Township of Berlin, in Connecticut, North America - "There was, in the audience, a certain indescribable something, which I never before witnessed...";

Extract of a Letter from the Rev. Joseph Badger, Missionary from New Connecticut, dated Canfield, July 19, 1803 - [describes camp meetings in Ohio; Badger (1757-1847), soldier in the Continental Army during the Revolution, graduated Yale in 1785, Presbyterian missionary and probably the first preacher in the Connecticut Westen Reserve].

Other articles of interest include: Abuse of Scripture; Letters from Africa; On Modest Apparel; Account of the Island of Ceylon; Existence of Devils; Persecution in Jamaica; Intelligence from Otaheite; &c.
