Holland Nimmons McTyeire Sermons
Scope and Contents
Most of the sermons were preached to the Methodist congregations to which McTyeire was minister; a few were preached to other groups such as African Americans and sailors; one was preached on board a riverboat. Many are annotated by McTyeire, retrospectively and informally; he includes his own criticism (based on hindsight), comments by others, remarks on the circumstances under which the sermon was preached, and other incidental comments of an autobiographical nature. There are also some handwritten annotations, as to date, location, etc., by John J. Tigert III and John J. Tigert IV.
