"The Hard Shell Baptists" sermon, n.d. [subseries]: (Item 1)
The term, "Hard-Shell Baptists" was used during the 19th century to refer to primitive, fundamentalist, uneducated Baptists. This sermon may not have originated vith the First Baptist Church of Seneca Falls, but has been filed with other Baptist material because of the title.

This is a comical, satirical sermon, possibly pretend, referring to an uneducated preacher. It also satirizes other religious groups including Methodists, United Brethren, Catholics and Universalists, and their ways of attaining salvation, c. 1860
