A Poem upon the deaths, and in memory of two eminent and faithful stewards and servants of Christ, viz. the Reverend Mr. Isaac Cushman, first pastor of the Church of Christ in Plympton, who deceased October 21st. Anno Domini, 1732, in the 84th. year of his age, and in the 37th. of his ministry: and Dr. Caleb Loring, a careful and faithful physician of said town, who deceased December 22d. Anno Domini, 1732 [electronic resource] : Composed with an intention and design to make Plympton, and others, sensible how liable and obnoxious to the sore judgments of God a people are, when the righteous are taken away out of the land of the living. [One line from Psalms]
