Actually I did mean the 1960s. The patron mentioned we had it in our collection at one time to check out.
Thanks everyone for your help. I'll see if I can narrow it down more by Common prayer (would a prayer said during the constitutional convention be considered a common prayer?)

long ago!) I am also suspecting it was the Book of Common Prayer, which was originally written in the 1500s. Most English-speaking people in the colonies were at least nominally Anglican (Church of England), and in several colonies it was the official religion.
