Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, of various texts pertaining to theological inquiry. Contents include a series of letters between "W.S" and "T.P" debating the issue of free will; arguments for the baptism of infants; letters from "W.S" criticizing "G.S.," a "Taylor, & ye most debauch'd villain in ye Countrey, & now turn'd Preacher;" a debate concerning how to keep the Sabbath after having sailed to America, accompanied by a diagram illustrating how ships sailing eastward may gain a day; a dialogue between Montezuma, Cortez, a Jesuit and an Indian priest, which is extremely similar to a scene in John Dryden's Indian Emperor; and a "Dialogue between ye Angel Gabriel & Adam in Paradise, concerning free will & Predestination" in blank verse, roughly parallel to a scene in Dryden's State of Innocence.
