A leaflet containing a prayer for adults seeking baptism and a list of recommended Bible passages. The prayer was written and printed by the missionary and botanist William Colenso (1811-1899) and contains a number of typographical curiosities. Small capitals were frequently used for capitals, W is used for wh and due to an apparent shortage of h, Colenso used b with the bottom cut open.
Slightly browned with a few spots and minor damage at the edges; in good condition. Hocken, p. 520; Williams 164.
