    A kind and generous brother has made available to me Cleaver's treatise. Lord willing, I will type up the appendix one of these days for an additional reference on the subject. Many thanks, brother!

    James Durham treats this subject at some length in his work on the Fourth Commandment in support of the midnight-to-midnight observance of the Christian Sabbath.

    William Pynchon, New England Puritan, wrote A treatise of the Sabbath. Wherein is contained the time of the first institution of it. The manner how the first Sabbath was ordained. Whereunto is annexed A treatise of holy time: and therein the great question about the beginning and ending of the Lords Day is largely discussed: and in both sundry cases of conscience are handled, and many texts of scripture are opened, the practice of the churches in New England are inquired into (1654), a portion of which I have also seen titled Holy time: or, The true limits of the Lords Day I. Proving, that the Lords Day doth begin with the natural morning, and that the morning of the natural day doth begin at mid-night; and so consequently that the Lords Day must both begin with the natural morning at mid-night, and end with the natural evening at mid-night. II. Proving, that the Jews beginning of the day at the sun-set evening was only in relation to the date of the person purified from his levitical uncleanness. III. That the Jews themselves did hold, that the natural day did continue after sun-set till mid-night.

    The book is on exhibition at the New York Public Library which says:

    I was a bit curious about one of the names above, so did an internet search.

    William Pynchon, while I doubt not his defense of the Sabbath, was quite unorthodox, even heretical, in his doctrine of justification.

    See the following containing a synopsis of the doctrine propounded in The Meritorious Price of Our Redemption, Justification, Etc.... http://www.dinsdoc.com/foster-1.htm

    N.B. pp 703-707.
