American RevolutionEulogy For The Reverend Samuel Dunbar - The First Reader of the Declaration of Independence From a Pulpit

(Reverend Samuel Dunbar). June 18, 1783, Arcive including the Handwritten Eulogy for the Departed Reverend Samuel Dunbar, of Stoughton, MA, along with his 1817 Holy Bible and two Documents, Archive of 4 items, Fine.
This archive lot features a period, firsthand, handwritten account of the funeral of the Reverend Samuel Dunbar. As an American Patriot, he was known as the eldest Son of Liberty, compatriot of John Adams and Paul Revere, a mentor of Roger Sherman, the host of the Suffolk Resolution, and the first Clergyman to read the Declaration of Independence from a public pulpit.
The four-page, 6" x 4.5" eulogy was found folded within a the accompanying large size, 1817 Holy Bible. It measures 10.5" x 9" x 3" thick, was printed by M. Carey & Son, Philadelphia. Also included in this lot is a printed Broadside entitled: "ORDER OF SERVICES at the Dedication of the Congregational Church" in Canton, MA, Jan 26, 1825, printed at the Office of W.W. Clapp. A second printed Broadside is also included: a prospectus for, "The Northampton Association of Education and Industry", MA (undated). The eulogy itself is somewhat toned and torn, with the text entirely intact. It reads, in part:
"Last Saturday evening departed this life, the Rev. Samuel Dunbar, in the 79th year of his age, and 59th of his ministry. Bless'd with a strong and vigorous constitution, he for more than half a century never failed, through indisposition, of discharged any ministerial function..."
Overall, this is a remarkable original archive. (4 items)

Rev. Samuel Dunbar (1704-1783) a Harvard educated parish minister, read a copy of the Declaration of Independence from the pulpit of the Old Meeting House within the Canton boundaries. A copy of the Declaration was entered into the town record book.
