    BC, 34, [Granville] Penn's Mineral and Mosaical Geologies, 387 - 402, Volume 21, Apr 1824, John Bird Sumner, Sumner had written a Treatise on the Records of the Creation, 1816, concluding, as here, that mosaic geology should not be interpreted in terms that fit modern geology; the same point is made in no. 397.

    BC, 69, [G.S.] Farber, The Difficulties of Infidelity, 174 - 185, Volume 22, Aug 1824, John Bird Sumner, prob., The strong support of Revelation against modern (especially Deistical) attacks is similar to Sumner's insistence on the literal truth of the bible in nos. 34, 80, and 397. (Esther Houghton working file) [review] (08/16)

    BC, 80, Holden's Dissertation on the Fall of Man, 337 - 345, Volume 22, Oct 1824, John Bird Sumner, prob., The insistence on the literal truth of the Bible as against modern figurative or symbolic interpretation (p. 340 etc.) is similar to his defence of the Mosaic against any modern geological reading.

    BC, 397, Dr. Ure's System of Geology, 387 - 412, Volume 6, Oct 1829, John Bird Sumner, Charles Lyell wrote on Jan. 14, 1830 (Lyell, Life I, 268) that he supposed Sumner gave this "dressing" to Ure; the critical references to Granville Penn (pp. 395-6) are reminiscent of no. 34 by Sumner.

    BC, 516, Sacred History of the World [by Sharon Turner], 64 - 88, Volume 12, Jul 1832, John Bird Sumner, Dr. Ure is attacked here, as he had been in no. 397 on the Biblical account of evolution vs. modern theories based on geology, and Turner too is challenged here on the same line.
