Awakening thoughts on the sleep of death. A short essay, on the sleep, which by death, all men must fall into; the meaning of that lively metaphor, the nature of the sleep and the method by which we may enter into an happy rest, when we fall asleep. With a debt paid unto the memory of some that sleep in Jesus. By Cotton Mather, D.D. [Two lines from Acts]

Mather, Cotton, 1663-1728.
