Description

William White (1748-1836) was born and educated in Philadelphia, and served as Rector of Christ Church and St. Peter's Church for 57 years. He also served as Chaplain of the Continental Congress, Chaplain of the Senate, the first presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, and a long-time trustee for the University of Pennsylvania.

In this bound volume, Reverend White noted additions to sermons he wrote "for the Assylum, for Visitation, and for the Mariner's Church." The "Assylum" was likely the Orphan Assylum, also known as the Orphan Society, and the Mariner's Church was, as its name implies, a church for the seamen who regularly visited the port of Philadelphia.
