The autobiography is in three parts with and appendix of her publications and life history until 1750, and her famous letter on the lawfulness of a woman appearing in print. It is a priceless treasure of an eighteenth century British Baptist woman's life, ministry, publications and contribution of Evangelicalism in England and in America. Dutton gives her own account of her own of her conversion experience, two marriages, ministry contributions with her yokefellow husband, Benjamin Dutton and his death at sea. Dutton's autobiography is important. Because it highlights important moments in her life and records her influential publishing carrier and correspondence. it includes her famous letter on her right to publish influential theological and spiritual works. Her autobiography shows firsthand the vast contributions and prolific career and ministry of a woman in this era. Her areas of ministry include writing, correspondence, books, and tracts. These show her great contribution to the evangelicalism and her great spiritual and theological life and contribution to the Baptist ministry and church and Evangelicalism in America and England. A work of a woman in her own hand is a great rarity from the eighteenth century.
