Budge answers Christopher Smith's point about the date of Carey's sermon from Smith's article ("The Spirit and the Letter of Carey’s Catalytic Watchword," The Baptist Quarterly 33 (1989-1990): 226-237), where he says, "Evidence remains to be brought forward to establish beyond reasonable doubt whether it was the 30th or 31st May that Carey preached so memorably."  In Budge's one-page article, he argues that the textual evidence points to the last Wednesday of May 1792 (May 30th), despite various sources using the "31st" date.  Budge summarizes, "All the evidence points to the fact that in the Periodical Accounts the date is wrong, an unintentional mistake which has been followed by far too many others.  Rippon has made it plain on page 418 that the sermon was preached on the Wednesday."  In addition, the plaque in Maid Marian Way, Nottingham, indicates May 30, 1792.

*Cramp, J. M. Baptist History from the Foundation of the Christian Church to the Close of the Eighteenth Century . Philadelphia: American Baptist Publication Society, n. d.

Cramp places Carey’s activities near the end of "The Quiet Period," a time of "backsliding and coldness" among "all religious communities in England."(p.500) He dates "religious progress" from Robert Hall's sermon, Help to Zion's Travelers, preached before the Northamptonshire Association in 1779. Cramp misdates Carey’s Enquiry to 1791, making it more the occasion, than the manifesto for the Baptist Missionary Society (pp. 501-503). Cramp refers to "Dr. Carey’s terse saying, ‘Expect great things, attempt great things.’"(p. 576). Cramp confidently assigns Carey's work to an aggressive phase of Christian revival.
