According to the introductory material, a group of Pittsburgh clergymen met on June 27, 1832 and called for July 6 to be set apart “as a day of fasting, humiliation, and prayer” in response to “the appearance of Asiatic Cholera” in North America (iii, iv). Nevin, who was serving on the faculty of the Western Theological Seminary at the time, delivered a sermon to mark the occasion, and published it at the request of some who were in the congregation that day.
