Cover torn at top of spine and is otherwise worn, soiled, with edge tears and chips. Some water stains noted on cover. RARE. Printed on ancient Warren's Olde Style paper using "Puritan" and "New Times Roman" type. During the Civil War John Harrolson advertised to request that women save urine to be used in the manufacture of nitre which was used in the making of black powder. The first page of this rare work presents the text on one of Harrolson's advertisements in an Alabama newspaper [believed to be the Selma Sentinel]. This is followed by 'three stanzas of a wry Southern view of his actions'. Then there follow three verses which were supposed to be of a Yankee versions of Harrolson's well-meant collecting. The Confederate version of the song appears to be included in Bobby Horton's Homespun Songs of the C . S . A . , Volume 5. References are made to John Harrolson in works about Confederate gunpowder and munitions manufacture.

He was also the co-editor of The Christian Union with Henry Ward Beecher from 1876 to 1881. Abbott later succeeded Beecher in 1888 as pastor of Plymouth Church, Brooklyn. He also wrote the official biography of Beecher and edited his papers. His son, Lawrence Fraser Abbott, accompanied President Roosevelt on a tour of Europe and Africa (1909–10).
