And I believe he wrote more than one catechism. They're actually pretty hard to find. Matthew Henry wrote an excellent one too; it would be a great find in a second-hand bookstore, worth its weight in gold easily. For now, you can peruse this scanned one by Watts in google books.

As for Matthew Henry, his sermons regarding children and family worship are exemplary. I'll try to find some on the internet. The only reason I know about them is because my wife sometime back bought me the complete works of M. Henry in an 8 volume set. If I print out some of the model prayers for childen, you would be absolutely astounded. One little prayer is able to put a four-year seminary school education to shame.

This last book is written in olde English and is in a narrative style similar to Foxe's Book of Martyrs. It gives the individual accounts of many conversions in early New England by children younger than 10 years old. It is quite an amazing read, and I have never heard anyone talk about this stultifying book before in Christian circles.
