Two religious tracts by John Beach, the first in reply to an argument put forward by John Dickinson, who had died the year before, and part of an ongoing dispute between the two that had resulted in the publication of a flurry of pamphlets on both sides. The second work discusses the finer points of Calvinism in response to an unnamed essay by Jedediah Mills. Beach was an Anglican minister who held numerous heterodox views; he was eventually shot in his own pulpit in 1782 for his Loyalist tendencies. Scarce, particularly with the half titles. EVANS 6093, 6094. ESTC W29102, W38333.
