William White (1748-1836) was born and educated in Philadelphia, and served as Rector of Christ Church and St. Peter's Church for 57 years. He also served as Chaplain of the Continental Congress, Chaplain of the Senate, the first presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, and a long-time trustee for the University of Pennsylvania. In this bound manuscript, Reverend White shares his thoughts on the spread of Christianity, the necessity to fund the Society for the Advancement of Christianity in Pennsylvania, and his thoughts on the Ordinance of Confirmation, the last of which, it is noted, "stood in connection with the last sermon ever preached by Bishop White."
