The doctrine of earthquakes. Two sermons preached at a particular fast in Weymouth, Nov. 3. 1727. The Friday after the earthquake. Wherein this terrible work appears not to proceed from natural second causes, in any orderly way of their producing: but from the mighty power of God immediately interposed; and is to the world, a token of God's anger, &c. and presage of terrible changes. With examples of many earthquakes in history, --illustrating this doctrine. By Thomas Paine, M.A. Pastor of a church in Weymouth. [Five lines from Isaiah]
