Published: 1811

Full Title: A solemn warning to all the dwellers upon earth, given forth in obedience to the express command of the Lord God, as communicated by Him, in several extraordinary visions and miraculous revelations, confirmed by sundry plain but wonderful signs, unto Nimrod Hughes, of the county of Washington, in Virginia, upon whom the awful duty of making this publication, has been laid and enforced; by many admonitions and severe chastisements of the Lord, for the space of ten months and nine days of unjust and close confinement in the prison of Abingdon, wherein he was shewn, that the certain destruction of one third of mankind, as foretold in the Scriptures, must take place on the fourth day of June, in the year of our Lord 1812.

Imprint states: " Martinsburgh, Virginia: Re-printed by J. Alburtis, for John R. Crawford., May, 1811." the pamphlet was first published in Trenton (NJ) earlier in the year 1811. Two other editions of the tract were apparently published in Virginia in 1811, one carrying a fictitious, mocking imprint (1811.097) and one lacking any imprint (1811.096). Crawford was a Frederick County farmer interested in evangelical preaching with apocalyptic overtones, as evinced by the two imprints he published: this title through Alburtis in 1811, and another in 1813 from the Winchester press of Jonathon Foster (1813.101).
