Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening. This manuscript contains two sermons by Tennent. The first sermon, "On communion with the Father and Son," begins by citing 2 Corinthians 1:21, "Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;" and one other verse, which is difficult to decipher. The second sermon, "On anointing," begins by citing 1 John 2:27, "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1746 or 1747, then delivered one or both of them again in 1751 and 1760.
