Caption title.
At head of title: Philadelphia, 4th. month, 10th. 1811. (The following Vindication was published at the end of the edition of Mosheim's Ecclesiastical history, printed in Philadelphia in 1800. It is but just to remark, that, as far as regards the religious society called Quakers, the translation of A. Maclaine is very faulty ... This will be evident to all, if a literal translation of Mosheim shall be ever published.* Jonathan Evans. Samuel P. Griffits.)
Parentheses substituted for square brackets in transcription of explanatory letter at head of title.

Elisha Thornton [and four others]. ..."--p. [8]. Page [7] is blank.
