Some Sunday Schoolin' with Rev. Samuel Stone

A little about the history of this 1684 text appears on the page immediately preceding the title page.

Rev. Samuel Stone was my ninth great-grandfather.

Thank you, Google Books, for enabling me to see this rare little treasure!

TK, this little book is a delight. What a treat from Google.

My son always tells me "Google is your friend" or his other favorite is "Let Me Google That For You". Now I will believe.

Your son is a master of understatement, Joan. Some days, Google is your most awesome best friend!

I Google everything! (Much to my husband's chagrin... he likes yahoo search.)

Thanks for visiting my blog and reading about my Aunt Gail and the WASP. One of the links wasn't working, which I have fixed -- the link to the piece I wrote the day that Congress issued the Gold Medal to the WASP --- one of my brothers was able to attend and he said it was quite a production with the honor guards, the wheel chairs, walkers, cans and crutches (the youngest WASP is now about 86+.

Anyhow, this link has a WASP video embedded which I have watched many times since posting it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh! I hate Yahoo search! Actually I hate everything Yahoo! And somehow the beast has once again tried to impose itself upon me by sneaking in on the coattails of something else... AVG, I think... it's trying to make itself my default search engine! Fie on you, Yahoo beast!

It is so much fun to find books, articles, treatises, etc. written by our ancestors! They really tell us more about what they thought and believed, and give us a better understanding about them as people. :)
