Sermons and short religious pieces, chiefly by James Phillips, dedicated to his mother Sina, Apr. 27, 1654.

Three sermons are on John iii. 6, Is. i. 18, Song of Solomon ii. I; at p. 267 is a funeral sermon on J. Davis by - Gregory, Mar. 9, 165i; at p. 319 is a copy of a poem on the Είκών βασιλική (beg. 'Dread Sir, Couldst thou before thy death,' signed 'F. N. G.'), followed by a prayer printed in that book.

Various dates between Nov. 10, 1653, and Apr. 27, 1654, occur, in which latter year the writer was twenty-four years old.

The dedication is from Westminster School, and the funeral sermon was preached at St. Margaret's, Westminster.
