Scope and Contents

This collection consists of sermons by Samuel Chenery Damon. The sermons are arranged first by numbers given by author (1-1027), then by date when numbers were not given, and, finally, miscellaneously. Please note that the author's numbering system is imperfect: many numbers are missing (many of those may be in the miscellaneous section at the end), and many are duplicated.
