In the letter from Bathurst to the Lord Bishop of Llandaff at the beginning of the pamphlet, Bathurst states that he had arrived in London to preach a Sermon "at the Queen's wish, not communicated to me privately, but by authority; when I found that, as late as Saturday: an order had been issued from your Lordship, as Dean of St. Paul's, that no Sermon should be preached."
The pamphlet sets out Bathurst's intentions in preaching the sermon and reproduces its contents.
Lettered at the end of the pamphlet: "Charles Wood, Printer, Poppin's Court, Fleet Street, London."
