From a cradle of American revival, an uncommon Jefferson County imprint and pocket hymnal published on the shores of Lake Ontario; the 1820 census has a Jesse Bacon farming in Ellisburg, Jefferson County, about 15 miles south of Sacket’s Harbor. Charles Grandison Finney had come of age outside of Sacket’s Harbor, and after leaving home for an educaiton had returned to his native Jefferson County in 1818; his spiritual crisis in 1821 led to a conversion experience in nearby Adams in late 1823, which propelled him into evangelical revival work in the area in early 1824 and soon onto a national stage. One assumes this hymnal may have been gotten up to aid these evangelical efforts or to have spurred Finney himself. OCLC (June 2018) notes three locations.
