How little has been done to make more widely known the manuscript 
sources for American religious history is very apparent to any one who will 
run through such attempts as have been made at the compilation of either 
general or specific bibliographies for the history of the religious organizations 
and movements in America. In the thirteen volumes which comprise the 
American Church History Series, some twenty separate bibliographies are 
given, but in only five is there any reference to manuscript material ; here the 
data are for the most part general rather than detailed in the information they 
contain and as they total only about sixty printed lines it is obvious how 
meagre they are. In his monumental work entitled The Congregationalism 
of the Last Three Hundred Years as seen in its Literature, Dr. Henry M. 
Dexter printed the results of his exhaustive bibliographical researches upon 
that subject, yet his list of over seven thousand titles contained only two 
somewhat closely printed pages devoted to the brief account of the manuscript 
sources for Congregational history. In some other individual works, espe- 
cially in recent monographs, a few occasional notes are to be found referring 
to manuscript documents. Some of the more noteworthy manuscript collec- 
tions have been printed, and as it has been natural to point to these published 
volumes, as more generally accessible and also more convenient for ordinary 
use, this may in part account for the relatively few references in print to the 
underlying sources. 

The present Inventory does not profess to be more than a contribution to 
the knowledge of the manuscript materials for American religious history ; 
it does not attempt to bring together in a systematic way the materials relating 
to the history of any particular denomination or religious movement. Manu- 
scripts still in private possession have been passed by, but such as are deposited 
with any of tfie collections examined and are likely to remain permanently 
in their present locations, have been included, though they may still be the 
property of individual owners. The general scope of the Inventory might be 
shown more clearly if its title were expanded into the form, Inventory of the 
Unpublished Material for American Religious History to be Found in Various: 
Repositories in the United States, Especially in the Archives of the Governing^ 
Bodies of the Various Protestant Churches and of their Missionary Societies 
and in the Libraries of their Theological Seminaries, Colleges, and Histor- 
ical Societies. It is a list of material to be found in definite t3rpes of ar- 
chives, libraries, and historical collections ; its purpose is to show what may^ 

be found at the various places from which information has been obtained by* 


iv Introduction 

personal visitation or by the returns to a questionary ; its usefulness may con- 
sist in part in indicating where historical material is not to be found, thus 
restraining some needless correspondence and travel on the part of investi- 
gators. Many of the collections are constantly growing, so that this negative 
service of the Inventory may be relied upon only with caution. 

While the attempt has been made to gain definite information concerning 
all the collections which would fall within the general scope of the present 
enterprise, for all points south of Maryland and Kentucky and west of the 
Mississif^i River a questionary has been employed. In addition to an intro- 
ductory note, explaining the purpose of the Inventory, the following specific 
information was asked for : 

1. Name and address of the Library, Historical Society, etc. 

2. Has it any special collection of manuscript (unprinted) material re- 

lating to any portion of American religious history ? 

3. Can you furnish a brief statement of the history of any such collection ? 

4. Docs your library contain, whether in a special collection or otherwise, 

manuscript material belonging to any of the following classes 
or in any way related to American religious history : 

a. Records of churches or other local religious bodies ? 

b. Records of associations, conventions, synods, assemblies, etc. ? 

c. Records of ecclesiastical trials ? 

d. Records of Sunday Schools, Young People's Societies, etc. ? 

e. Statistics of churches or other religious bodies ? 

f. Historical sketches of churches, historical sermons and addresses ? 

g. Journals, diaries, note-books, and correspondence of ministers or 

other religious workers ? 
h. Biographic^ or autobiographical material concerning the same? 
i. Sermons .or sermon-notes ? 
j. Any other material bearing upon American religious history? 

These questions were intended to cover all the kinds of material which 
had been found in the collections personally visited and they indicate definitely 
the nature of almost all the items listed in this Inventory. 

The results gained from the questionary were not altogether satisfactory. 
For obvious reasons, the hearts of librarians and archivists do not warm up 
to the reception of a printed list of questions as they do to the living investi- 
gator in search of historical data. Some of the returns were detailed in the 
character of the information they contained ; some were satisfactory for the 
purpose of the Inventory when a simple " No " was placed after some or even 
all of the questions. Quite different was it, however, when the only informa- 
tion vouchsafed was a simple " Yes ", although in most cases it was probably 
warrantable to assume that such material as gave the basis for this simple 
affirmative answer was of local importance only. 

The question which perhaps arose first in the mind of the compiler of this 
inventory, as he began his task of examining the various collections of manu- 
scripts, was, What is to be considered as material for American religious 

Introduction v 

history? To a very large extent, however, the nature of the collections them- 
selves determined the practical answer to be given to the question. Certain 
types of material in printed works which suggested difficulties on the border 
line between the religious and the secular, as a matter of fact did not present 
themselves in the manuscript material actually examined. Periiaps the most 
serious form of the question arose in connection with biographical material 
and the writings of some individuals ; but as a large part of the historical work 
in the held of American religious movements will probably be done by those 
who are following out biographical lines of investigation, it has seemed at 
least useful, if not scientifically consistent, to include some personal material 
not in itself of a religious character, but connected with some man or woman 
whose career will most likely be approached from an interest in his or her 
religious activities. The very fact that this material has come into collections 
of the types included in the scheme of the Inventory has some bearing upon 
the answer to the original question as to whether particular material was 
pertinent to this catalogue, and, after all, only a few items are included which 
could have their presence challenged even by a relatively narrow interpre- 
tation of the term " religious ". All material which reveals the vital interest 
of the organized religious forces in social activities, such as education and 
philanthropy, has been, we believe, rightly included. 

It will be observed that some public (non-ecclesiastical) libraries have been 
included, some of them having been visited, and questic»iaries having been 
sent to those likely to have material relating to American religious history. 

The nature of most of the material listed is such that it would be almost 
impossible to give any critical estimate of its intrinsic value for historical pur- 
poses. While these manuscripts have not been printed — for only in excep- 
tional cases does the Inventory include any published material — ^some of them 
have been worked through by historical writers and perhaps the most important 
data utilized in biographical or historical works. Even in these cases, how- 
ever, there will be some profitable gleanings, especially when the reworicing 
is carried along by some other motive and in relation to some other point of 
interest than those maintained in the previous use of the same documents. 
On the whole the compiler has been somewhat surprised that the libraries and 
archives visited did not contain more systematic collections of such types as 
the Wheelock and Backus Collections and the Hawks Transcripts. Most of 
the collections are mere accumulations rather than the result of definite effort 
to secure and preserve the correspondence and other papers of the men whose 
careers have been closely interwoven with the religious history of America. 
So far as official records are concerned, in very -few cases do we find anything 
like complete sets of the manuscripts which antedate the time when the printed 
copies of the official proceedings made the preservation of the original records 
less important. This is particularly true of those ecclesiastical bodies which 
are more loosely organized and which have left their records largely to the 

vi Introduction 

private care of local clerks. Many of the books have perished in fires, while 
at least one listed herein served as a family scrap-book before it found its 
way into the archives where it really belonged. 

While we regret that more of the records of the past have not been pre- 
served, historical learning of all future time will owe a debt of gratitude to 
the many individuals, and especially the librarians and other custodians of 
the collections both large and small, who with almost no financial support have 
been the means of the preservation of a large part of that which has come 
down to us ; and some of these faithful servants of History are still watching 
over her interests with a devotion which deserves the reward which most of 
all they themselves would ask for — a wider recognition of the importance of 
the work they are doing. This would lead, they believe, to a more ade- 
quate financial support of the historical collections and to their more general 

The present safety of many of the manuscripts listed in this volume is de- 
cidedly questionable. The most imminent peril is from fire. One valuable 
collection is in a fire-proof vault, but the method of lighting the latter en- 
dangers its contents and perhaps even the life of any one who attempts to 
work within it. Over against this situation may be placed that of another 
vault, large, well lighted, probably absolutely fire-proof, planned especially 
for the preservation of historical records, but without a page of manuscript 
or other historical material within it. In this Inventory the fact is usually 
stated when the manuscript collections are given special protection against 
fire ; in too many instances valuable collections are so exposed to danger from 
this arch-foe of historical material that one would hesitate to expose additional 
manuscripts to the same peril. The security of what is already possessed should 
be assured before making much effort to enlarge the collections themselves. 

The compiler of the Inventory feels that a word of apology is due because 
of the lapse of time since he began the work. The task was assumed with 
the understanding that his regular duties in connection with his college posi- 
tion were to take precedence, and this has made it necessary to relegate most 
of the work, especially that of the examination of the collections themselves, 
to the vacation seasons. When most of the archives and libraries had been 
visited and the work of arranging the items for publication was well started, 
the compiler accepted a new position which involved labors that made it nec- 
essary to leave the Inventory practically untouched for an entire academic 
year. There have been some difficulties in gaining access to some of the 
collections, which would have delayed the undertaking beyond the first ex- 
pectations ; most of these delays came not from any lack of co-operation on 
the part of the various archivists and librarians, but quite to the contrary ; 
they arose from a desire that the examination of the materials might be made 
with these experts at hand, so that the compiler of the Inventory might have 
the advantage of their wide and accurate learning. In spite of this co-opera- 

Introduction vii 

tion, however, the compiler can not hope to have his work free from all inac- 
curacies. To a very large extent the materials listed have local bearings that 
make them extremely difficult to arrange without a full knowledge of local 
names, both of places and individuals. Doubtless, in spite of much care, some 
names have been confused and other inaccuracies may be found such as are 
almost inevitable unless one is thoroughly conversant with the local history 
and geogn^hy. Probably no single archivist or librarian would have handled 
the material of his own collection in just the way it is listed here, but it has 
seemed wise to adopt a general scheme, not to be followed slavishly where 
tiiat would mean confusion, but likely to make the information in this Inven- 
tory more readily accessible to those who might wish to consult it in a search, 
in all the collections listed, for particular classes of material. While the local 
collection is the basis of the arrangement of the Inventory, the latter is in- 
tended to serve the historical worker at large rather than the local collection 
itself. The order is alphabetical, by state, town, and repository or institution. 
The compiler wishes to extend his cordial thanks for the ready assistance 
and coK)peration which have been so freely g^ven during the last four years 
by those in charge of the various collections visited and to those who have so 
kindly replied to the questionary and to other inquiries made from time to time.

California Hall, Berkeley, California. 

This society has an exceedingly important coIIecti(Hi of manuscript material 
for the history of the Roman Catholic missions in Mexico, the Southwest, and 
California, with less important material for Protestant missions in Oregon and 
adjacent parts. The collection also contains originals or copies of some of 
the mission books and copies of the archives of the Bishop of San Francisco. 


San Anselmo, California. 

As this is a Presbyterian institution most of the manuscript material here 
is connected with the history of that denomination. Most of it is undassiiied 
as yet, but it is supposed to contain much important material for the history 
of Presbyterianism in California and on the Pacific Coast. The librarian re- 
ports a considerable number of manuscripts of the Rev. Drs. William A. Scott, 
Henry A. Boardman, George Burrowes, William Alexander, and other pio- 
neers of the Presbyterian Church in California. He also reports complete 
records of the S3mods of the Pacific Coast, some historical sketches, journals, 
diaries, biographical data, sermons, etc., widi a number of letters of the 
founders of the seminary. 


Hartford, Connecticut. 

Henry Wolcott, jr. Notes in cipher of sermcms and lectures by Mr. 
Warham and Mr. Huit of Windsor, and Mr. Hooker and Mr. Stone, 
at Hartford, from April 19, 1638, to April 29, 1641, in regular course. 
(The volume is briefly described and two of the abstracts of Hooker's 
sermons are printed in Conn. Hist. Soc. Collections, I.) 
Separate Church Papers. 3 vols. 

Volume I. consists of 199 doctmients (as numbered, two separate parts 
of one document sometimes being numbered as two documents) , per- 
taining to Separate churches, especially to that in Canterbiu'y, Con- 
necticut. 1 733- 1 772. 

Volume II. consists of 209 documents of the same general character as 
the preceding. 1772-1815. 

Volume III. consists of 93 documents, including the records of the Gen- 
eral Meeting of the Strict Congregation^ Churches, 1782-1795, 
1798, 1799, 1801-1811.

•/-•. Hartford, Connecticut. 

*• •The archives of the state of Connecticut comprise a large number of docu- 
'*'.ments in manuscript, most of which have come into the possession of the 
/,'j-.. •public authorities because of the close relation of Church and State in Con- 
'yl''' necticut before 1818. The papers since 1789 have not as yet been classified 
and were not accessible for examination, nor are they likely to be until some 
time after the State Library is established in its new home, the comer-stone 
of which was laid in May, 1909. The earlier manuscripts, dating from 1659 
to 1789, have been bound in fifteen volumes and are known as the " Ecclesi- 
astical Papers ". Witfi the exception of a few misplacements, these manu- 
scripts are arranged in chronological order, numbered consecutively in each 
volume, the sum total of these numbers being 5138. A few inserts (indicated 
by letters, e. g,, 10, io», 11) will bring the number well up to 5200. Each 
volume contains a topical index of its contents. 

As it is hoped that the state of Connecticut will soon complete the organiza^ 
tion of the remaining ecclesiastical papers in its archives and that an adequate 
calendar of the complete collection will be prepared, it has seemed unwise to 
attempt any description of the individual manuscripts, save as illustrations of 
the general description here given. 

A large number of the papers are concerned with local ecclesiastical affairs, 
such as the organization of parishes, de novo, by division, or by union ; the 
building or repairing of meeting-houses, the location often involving disputes ; 
the levying of rates either in connection with these enterprises or in general 
for the support of the religious establishment. In many cases there are peti- 
tions to the General Court and orders of the Court which supplement the 
records of that legislative body, throwing considerable light upon the broad 
activities of the latter in connection with religious and ecclesiastical affairs. 
There are many papers which are the direct antecedents of colonial statutes, 
while it is probable that certain processes of legislation in Connecticut can be 
traced only through these papers and the endorsements upon them. Some 
of the papers are concerned with church quarrels, the holding of councils, 
the decision of ethical questions confronting colonial society. Of special im- 
portance and interest are the large number of manuscripts bearing upon the 
question of religious liberty, including petitions against rates, and for the 
privileges guaranteed by the English Toleration Act, together with general 
declarations in favor of liberty of conscience. Through the indexes there is 
ready access to much information concerning the local churches. 

A few specific items are listed here, in part illustrative of the general de- 
scription just given, in part supplementary to it. 

Petition of members of the Church of England in regard to the baptism 
of their children, 1664. Also an address of 636 members of the

The archives of this society, which was organized in 1798, are located in the 
Memorial Hall of the General Omference of the Congregational Churches of

protection to the papers and books in the collection. The material, almost 
without exception, is connected with the history of Congregationalism in Con-

Ford Building, Ashburton Place, Boston, Massachusetts. 

This missionary organization, through which the Northern Baptists have 
carried on most of their foreign missionary work and which had an active 
part in the organizing of missionary efforts in the early part of the nineteenth 
century, possesses a library of missionary literature. It has lost considerable 
historical material through fires which have destroyed Tremont Temple, long 
the headquarters of the Missionary Union. The archives of the Society which 
are now located in a fire-proof vault in the Ford Building, contain a large 
number of letters from early missionaries on the fields and other miscellaneous 
correspondence ; there are also files of correspondence, largely administrative 
or else reports from the foreign fields, much of which has been printed in the 
Baptist Missionary Magazine and in the annual reports ; also copies of letters 


26 Massachusetts: Boston 

of the Home and Foreign secretaries, and papers relative to applicants for 
appointment as missionaries. Some local religious conditions are reflected 
in some of this correspondence, but otherwise little concerning American re- 
ligious history. The records which have some bearing upon the history of 
this missionary org^ization are listed below: 

Records of " The General Missionary Convention of the Baptist Denomi- 
nation in the United States of America, for Foreign Missions ", with 
records of the Board of Managers. 1814-1820. (These are gen- 
erally printed, though not always in complete form.) 

Records of the Board of Managers of the Baptist General Convention. 

Records of the Baptist General Convention ; also of the Executive Com- 
mittee and of the Board. 1835- 1843. 

Records of the " Acting Board ". 1843-1847. (The General Convention 
became the American Baptist Missionary Union by accepting a new 
act of incorporation. May 19, 1846.) 

Records of the Executive Committee. May 26, 1846, to current records. 


Congregational House, Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts. 

Four lejter-books containing copies of " Letters to the Indian Missions ; 
also other letters having reference to Indian Missions and properly 
within that Department ". 1818-1820; 1832-1836. 

Twenty-eight letter-books containing copies of letters from the secretaries 
in regard to Indian missions, 1836- 1883, at which latter date the work 
amon^ the Indians was transferred to the American Missionary As- 

224 letter-books containing copies of letters to foreign missionaries and 
about foreign missions, but containing some reflection of domestic 
religious conditions. Mar. 7, 1836, to current files. 

Forty-two letter-books, in part hand copies of letters in the previous 
series that are faint, with some additional letters. 1838-1875. 


Congregational House, Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts. 

A society " for the establishment of a Congregational Library, and the culti- 
vation of theological science " was organized in Boston in 185 1 and reorganized 
in 1853. The following year it was incorporated by act of the General Court 
under " the name of the CongregaticHial Library Association, at Boston, for 
the purpose of establishing and perpetuating a library of the religious his- 
tory and literature of New England ". In 1864, by act of the General 
Court, approved May 10 by the governor, the name was changed to the 
American Congregational Association and the functions of the society were 
somewhat increased. The constitution of the Association states among its 
objects, " to found and perpetuate a library of books, pamphlets, and manu- 

Massachusetts: Boston 27 

scripts, and a collection of portraits and relics of the past ; and to do what- 
ever else . . . shall serve to illustrate Congregational history, and promote the 
general interests of the Congregational churches ". To promote this object, 
constant efforts have been made to gather a comprehensive collection of Con- 
gregational historical material, until, according to the latest statistics furnished 
by the librarian, in October, 1909, there is a collection of 57,185 volumes, with 
54,183 pamphlets, and extensive files of Congregational and other periodicals. 
The library has commodious quarters in the Congregational House, which 
would be classed as a fire-proof building. 

As will be seen from the list which follows, the manuscript material in this 
library is of a miscellaneous character, for the most part being valuable for 
local history and biographical study rather than for any light which might be 
thrown upon the history of Congregationalism as a general movement

The New England Baptist Library Association was organized Apr. 13, 1908, 
and incorporated Apr. 17, 1908, with the purpose, as stated in its constitu- 
tion, *' To establish and maintain a Baptist Library in Boston ; to federate all 
societies having the care of Baptist archives and collections in New England 
. . . ; to gather such a collection of books, pamphlets, manuscripts, prints, and 
relics, historical and missionary, as shall make this Library of recognized 
value for serious research ". 

The larger part of the historical material which has come into this library 
belongs to the Backus Historical Society and is known as the Backus Collec- 
tion; but there is also other manuscript material (which will be found listed 
below), which belongs to the other societies which are members of the New 
England Baptist Library Association, and still other collections, relating to 
the work of various Baptist organizations, which have been kept distinct and 
are designated as follows: the Baldwin Cbllecticm, relating to the American 
Baptist Foreign Mission Society and the work of foreign missions; the 
Sharp Collection, relating to the Massachusetts Baptist Missionary Society ; 
the Chaplin Collection, relating to the Northern Baptist Education Society ; 

Massachusetts: Boston 86 

and other collections which as yet contain no manuscript material in the field 
covered by this Inventory. 

The Backus Historical Society was organized in 1853 and has brought to- 
gether some 800 volumes, several thousand pamphlets, including extensive 
files of State Convention and Association minutes, especially for New England, 
and the invaluable manuscript collections listed in some detail below. The 
term " Backus Collection '' is now used to designate the entire library of the 
Backus Historical Society; it has also been used, however, to denote spe- 
cifically the manuscripts of Rev. Isaac Backus himself and also the manu- 
scripts of himself and others which he had collected. It is in this last sense 
that the term is used below (p. 39), although some of the manuscripts listed 
under that caption have doubtless found their way into the collection since 
the death of Backus.

This consists chiefly of letters and papers collected by Rev. Isaac Backus, 
the Baptist historian, with some additional material which has been added to 
the collection since the days of Backus. It may be divided into four parts, as 
f (dlows : 

1. Backus Diaries and personal miscellanies. (Extracts from the diaries 

are printed in Hovey's Memoir of the Life and Times of the Rev, 
Isaac Backus, A. Af .) 

2. Backus Correspondence, including letters both by Backus and to him, 

with some copies of letters. (Some of these are printed in Hovey's 
Memoir of . , , Backus, but usually not in full.) 

3. Backus Papers, of considerable importance for Baptist history in the 

second half of the eighteenth century, especially in New England. 

4. Warren Association Papers, probably for the most part collected by 


I. Backus Diaries and Personal Miscellanies.

appeared in print, some of those which contain only foreigfn intelligence, and

This consists of approximately four thousand letters and other papers re- 
lated directly or indirectly to Rev. Eleazar Wheelock, the founder of Dart- 
mouth College. There are letters by him and letters to him, letters and other 
papers relating to Indian missions, Moor's Charity School, the early history 
of Dartmouth College, the ministerial work of Wheelock, local religious af- 
fairs and conditions. Wheelock was for about thirty-five years pastor of the 
Congregational Church at Lebanon, Connecticut, so the letters reflect many 
of the religious conditions in that state. A number of the letters have been 
published in full or in abstract in Chase's History of Dartmouth College and 
Hanover, N. H., in McClure's Memoirs of the Rev. Eleasar Wheelock, and in 
Love's Samson Occam. According to Chase ( I. 557) , the papers of Wheelock 
passed into the possession of his son, John Wheelock, and then to the latter's 
son-in-law. Rev. William Allen, who was also executor of John Wheelock's 
estate. Some papers and letters later than the time of Eleazar Wheelock, who 
died Apr. 24, 1779, ^^ accumulated in the family and have remained with

located in the Sage Library, Rutgers College, at New Brunswick, New Jersey. 

New Jersey: New Brunswick 86 

Besides the unpublished manuscript mentioned below in the classified list, 
there are located here the transcripts, with translations, of papers relating to 
the Reformed Church in America, which were extracted from the books of 
the Qassis of Amsterdam and copied under the direction of John Romeyn 
Brodhead in 1841, which are printed in Dr. E. T. Corwin's Ecclesiastical Re- 
cords of the State of New York. In the case of some other records listed 
below, the essential parts are printed in Dr. Corwin's Digest of Synodical Leg- 
islation of the Reformed Church in America (1906), while the reports of the 
meetings of the Qasses have usually been printed in the Reformed Church 
periodical press. The reports of the several Classes to the particular (or dis- 
trict) synods to which each has belonged have been printed in the minutes of 
the latter. Each Qassis has its own manuscript records complete from the 
date of its organization ; in 1880, however, the General Synod requested that 
volumes of original minutes not in actual use be deposited for safe-keeping 
in the archives at' New Bnmswick. Not all the Classes have sent in their 
records as yet ; the volumes of Minutes of Classes listed below, at least those 
of Qasses now existing, are merely deposited in these archives. Similarly 
efforts have been made to bring together here the records of such churches 
as have been disbanded, the records themselves remaining the prc^rty of the 
Classes to which those churches belonged.

This collection was begun by the late Samuel Colgate as a private enterprise

of Colgate University, where they occupy a convenient room in the university 
library. The large number of printed books and pamphlets, with extensive 
files of reports, minutes of associations, religious periodicals, etc., make this 
one of the most valuable collections for Baptist history. The manuscript ma- 
terial is not so important, being chiefly of local or of biog^phical signifi- 
cance only.

chiefly with the life and work of Rev. Samuel Parker. There is also a sermon 
from the South, endorsed " Preached in Chh. J. Island 26 Jany 1834 ". 


The Bible House, Astor Place, New York City. 

This society, which was organized in 1816, has had a part in American 
religious history in an at least twofold way. In its work of Bible distribution 
it has sent its colporteurs and other agents out on the frontiers when religious 
conditions were shaping themselves ; hence the reports to the society and the 
correspondence in general reflect the process of religious organization and 
development, particularly in the West. Moreover, certain differences among 
the Protestant denominations which form the natural constituency of the 
American Bible Society have involved the society in controversies which have 
had some temporary historical importance. 

The correspondence of the society has been generally preserved. The let- 
ters to the society and its executive officers are in bound volumes until recent 
years, when they have been kept in files. While they are largely concerned 
with business and administrative matters, many of the letters refer to re- 
ligious activities in various parts of the country. Some of the letters or ex- 

New York: New York City 97 

tracts from them have been printed in the Reports of the society, in the Bible 
Society Record, and in other publications of the society. The volume of the 
First Year, 1816-1817, contains interesting material concerning the organiza- 
tion of the society. The volume of the Seventh Year, First Part, 1822-1823, 
contains the journal of Rev. Richard D. Hall, travelling agent. Mar., 1822- 
Feb. 28, 1823, a ** Continuation of the Journal " to Nov. 22, 1823, being found 
in the volume of the Eighth Year, First Part (Agents' Letters, no. 70). 

In the archives are the minutes of the managers. May 11, 1816, to the pres- 
ent, and the minutes of various administrative committees. These are im- 
portant for the history of the society itself. A box, presumably containing 
records and other documents, belonging to the New York Sabbath Com- 
mittee, is deposited in the vault. 

Among a considerable mass of miscellaneous material not in the vault there 
was noted a petition (signed by the officers and sealed) of the society to the 
legislature of New York, Feb. 21, 1844, objecting to the incorporation of the 
American and Foreign Bible Society on account of the similarity of names. 

The American Bible Society has deposited in the Lenox Library, besides a 
valuable collection of printed works, the following manuscript material con- 
nected with the American Revision of the Bible: 

Signed copy of the records of the American Bible Revision Committee.

281 Fourth Avenue, New York City, New York. 

The archives of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States are 
in the official care of the acting registrar of the General Convention and are 
kept in a fire-proof vault in room 46 of the Church Missions House, which 
is the office of the secretary of the House of Deputies. Most of the official 
records are printed, but in the archives are a few miscellaneous papers and 
the collections of manuscripts listed below.

In 1836, Dr. Francis L. Hawks, historiographer of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church of the United States of America, visited England and made transcripts 
of such manuscripts relating to the history of the Church of England in Amer- 
ica as were to be found in the archives of the Society for the Propagation of 
the Gospel in Foreign Parts, in the archives of the Bishop of London in Ful- 
ham Palace, and in the library of Lambeth Palace, the London residence of the 
Archbishop of Canterbury. The largest part of the transcripts were made 
from the Letter-Book of the society just named, twenty-six volumes of one 
series (1702-1736), and thirteen volumes of another series (Bearcroft, 1738- 
1752), being represented. Most of the remaining transcripts came from the 
unbound manuscripts preserved in the three archives mentioned above. With 
the exception of the first transcripts in the New York volume ( 1699) » ^^^ ^ 
the Church General volume (1689), the manuscripts copied fall between 1700 
and 1800 inclusive. 

Some of the transcripts have been printed in the Documentary History of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, containing nu- 
merous hitherto unpublished Documents concerning the Church in Connecticut 
(2 vols.), by Doctors Hawks and Perry, and in Bishop Perry's Historical Col- 
lections relating to the American Colonial Church (4 vols.), which contains 
materials bearing upon the colonial history of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Mas- 
sachusetts, Maryland, and Delaware. So far as they were found and identi- 
fied, the original manuscripts from which the Hawks Transcripts were made 

New York: New York City 99 

are listed in Andrews and Davenport's Guide to the Manuscript Materials for 
the History of the United States to 1783, in the British Museum, in Minor 
London Archives, and in the Libraries of Oxford and Cambridge, published 
by the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 1908. 

The Hawks Transcripts are found in seventeen bound folio volumes, in 
which have been inserted some copies earlier than Dr. Hawks's transcripts 
and also a few apparently original papers. The several volumes are devoted 
to material relating to particular colonies (states) ; series of two volumes each 
contain matter relating to Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and South 
Carolina respectively ; single volumes are devoted to Rhode Island, Connecti- 
cut, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, and North Carolina, and also to the 
" Church General " ; one volume contains material relating to Maine, New 
Hampshire, and Vermont, while another has that relating to Georgia and 
Florida. The volume of Maryland material was not found ; as noted above, 
this portion of the Transcripts has been printed. 

The contents of the several volumes of Transcripts are arranged generally 
in chronological order, though there are a few misplacements, usually readily 
detected, through marginal datings. Dates placed in ( ) do not necessarily 
come from the transcripts but are inserted to indicate their location in th^ 
volumes. Only the unprinted volumes are listed below, the material being 
classified geographically, although in the case of letters, the primary arrange- 
ment is alphabetical by authors. 

Much of the correspondence is with the Secretary of the Society for the 
Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, who is referred to below as 
" Secretary ". The ordinary abbreviation, S. P. G., is used for the society. 
Unless otherwise indicated " Archbishop " means the Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. The asterisk * is used to indicate transcripts which are extracts, so far 
as that fact could be determined. 

It is proper to add that Professor Herbert L. Osgood, of Columbia Uni- 
versity, after careful comparison with the originals in London, declares the 
texts of many letters in Bishop Perry's volumes, and presumably therefore in 
the Hawks Transcripts, to be marred by numerous errors.

The Hobast Manuscripts. 

These consist chiefly of letters to Rev. Dr. John H. Hobart, 1796-1830, who 
was elected Assistant Bishop of New York in 181 1 and became bishop of that 
diocese in 1816. There are also a few miscellaneous papers. About 1325 
letters to Dr. Hobart are mounted in chronolc^cal order in blank books (29 
volumes) ; over 2500 others are done up in packages, arranged alphabetically 
by authors. There is a typewritten " Index to the Hobart MSS.", which 
covers only the letters done up in the packages. There are eleven drafts of 
letters by Dr. Hobart, 1798-1827, while the packages contain a few letters 
to Bishop Moore, his predecessor. In the first volume of letters are several 
reports of the conditions existing in the churches, with some historical sketches. 
The letters refer frequently to the situation in various parishes in the diocese 
of New York. 

The Peters Manuscripts. 

This collection consists of about 800 letters to Rev. Dr. Samuel Peters, 
1772-1822, mounted in eighteen volumes, with a few manuscript addresses by 
Peters and a few letters by him, with some other miscellaneous papers. Many 
of the letters, especially those of 1794 and 1795, refer to his election as Bishop 
of Vermont, Feb. 27, 1794, recognition of which was refused by the Arch- 
bishop of Gmterbury and by the General Convention. 

The Ravenscroft Manuscripts. 

These consist of some of the correspondence of John S. Ravenscroft, who 
in 1823 became Bishop of North Carolina; there are four volumes, 1818- 
1830, containing in all somewhat over two hundred letters, for the most part 
to Ravenscroft, but including also a few by him, originals or copies, and a 
few miscellaneous papers. Among the latter is his ''Episcopal Journal", 
July 8, 1824-Oct. 6, 1828, showing distances travelled, expenses, number of 
sermons preached, number of communicants in places visited, confirmations, 
baptisms, etc. There is also a subscription paper for Edenton Theological 
Seminary, 1821. 

The Smith Manuscripts. 

Three volumes of letters, part of them to Rev. Dr. William Smith of Phila- 
delphia and part by him, with some other correspondence and papers, make 
up the Smith Manuscripts. Volume I. begins with this note : " The following 
Letters and Papers, numbered 1-38, concern chiefly the United Churches of 
Christ Church and St Peter's in Philadelphia and furnish information con- 
cerning Mr. Cummings (the Commissary), Dr. Jenney, Mr. Peters, Mr. 
Duch6 and others " (1726-1770). Letters and papers follow, numbered 1-22, 
which relate " to troubles in the United Churches of Christ Church and St. 
Peter's '' . . . and which show " an interference in the affairs of the Church 
by the celebrated Gilbert Tennent and some of his adherents in the Synod of 

180 New York: New York City 

the presbyterian clergy" (1760-1766). "Then follow 14 letters and papers 
concerning Rev. Mr. McClenaghan, the origin of St. Paul's Church, Phila- 
delphia, its refusal to submit to the Bishop of London, its dependence on Mr. 
Whitfield, its employment of Rev. Mr. Stringer (one of those for whom Mr. 
Wesley obtained ordination in London from a Bishop of the Greek Church), 
with Mr. Stringer's very judicious and Christian conduct, his submission to 
and ordination by the Bishop of London, whereby schism was healed and all 
the clergy and churches of Philadelphia were happily united" (1766-1773). 
Another volume contains letters to William Smith and others, 1717-1783, 
including two letters from the Bishop of London (Oct. 16, 1773, Sept. 3, 1774), 
copies of several letters of Smith to Archbishop Herring of Canterbury, and 
several letters from and to Philip Bearcroft. The third volume (1755-1791) 
contains a letter of the Bishop of Oxford, Feb. i, 1755 ; a copy of a letter of 
the Archbishop of Canterbury to " Good Dr. Johnson ", concerning the So- 
ciety for the Propagation of the Gospel and its work in America, Sept. 27, 
1758 ; a copy of a letter of Smith to the archbishop, Apr., 1762 ; a congratu- 
latory letter to Smith, upon his return from England and respecting a ** cath- 
olic establishment of the College of Philadelphia ", signed by the Archbishop 
of Canterbury, Thomas and Richard Penn, and Samuel Chandler, Apr. 9, 
1764 ; " Thoughts upon the present State of the Church of England in Amer- 
ica " (June, 1764) ; " Thoughts on the Ecclesiastical Establishment in Can- 
ada", Apr. II, 1764; two letters of the Bishop of Londcm, Sept 23, 1765, 
Sept. 7, 1772 ; twenty-one letters of William White to William Smith, Oct. 19, 
1785-May 6, 1786, in regard to the liturgy. {Cf. W. S. Perry's A Half Century 
of the Legislation of the American Church, volume III., Historical Notes and 

The White Manuscripts. 

These comprise two volumes of letters to Rev. Dr. (Bishop) William White, 
with some drafts or copies of letters by White. The first volume contains 
fifty-seven letters to White, 1789-1823. The second volume, 1823-1835, con- 
tains some thirty letters to White and copies of letters by him ; it also contains 
a paper, unsigned and without date, '* The State of the Church in Pennsyl- 
vania most humbly offered to the venerable Society for the Propagation of 
the Gospel in foreign Parts ", and a " Request of ( 10) clergy concerning 
Baptism ". 



Fifteenth Street Meeting-house, Fifteenth Street, Corner of 


A separation in the New York Yearly Meeting occurred in 1828, but the two 
Yearly Meetings maintain joint archives in the Fifteenth Street Meeting- 
house, where fire-proof safes afford adequate protection to the records. A 

Neiv York: New York City 181 

Joint Committee on Records is in charge of the archives, John Cox, jr., 156 
Fifth Avenue, New Yorlc City, being the custodian. Records which ante- 
date the Separation are considered the joint property of the two Yearly 
Meetings if recovered from sources outside of either Yearly Meeting. Cur- 
rent records are generally in the custody of the clerks of the respective Meet- 
ings. Definite efforts are being made to acquire all old records of the subordi- 
nate meetings, and as current record-books become full it is expected that 
they will be deposited in these archives. 

A very complete and detailed catalc^^e of the archives has been compiled 
in typewritten form by John Cox, jr., the custodian, under the title, ** Cata- 
\ogat of the records in possession of, or relating to, die two New York Yearly 
Meetings of the Religious Society of Friends and their subordinate Meetings, 
giving a detailed description of each volume, and its present location, and some 
historical notes concerning the establishment of meetings and the location of 
meeting houses ". As it is hoped that in the near future this detailed catalc^^e 
will be published, it has seemed advisable to indicate here only the records 
and some other papers of the Yearly Meetings, and to follow these witfi a 
list of the subordinate meetings whose records, in whole or in part, are to be 
found in the joint archives.

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. 

Almost from the beginning of the history of the Moravian Brethren in this 
country, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has been the centre of their organized 
activities, and a vast amount of their manuscript material has accumulated 
here. A considerable proportion of the papers relate to the congregation at 
Bethlehem, but reports from missionaries and the mission stations were con- 
stantly sent in to the headquarters here. No attempt has been made to include 
in this Inventory such reports as come from the mission fields outside the 
present limits of the United States and Canada. By far the larger part of the 
manuscripts, especially the letters and the diaries and reports of congregations, 
are in German, but they are listed here, with few exceptions, by designations 
in English. 

The Malin Library of Moravian Literature, with which the archives are 
connected, contains many important printed books relating to the history of 
the Unitas Fratrum both in Europe and in America. A brief list of such 
manuscripts in the archives as were deemed of primary importance for the 
history of the Unitas Fratrum is to be found in volume VIII. of the Ameriam 
Church History series ; a more detailed list, though incomplete and in many 
particulars imperfect, appears in the Ohio Archaeological and Historical Quar- 
terly of Apr., 1909, where announcement is made of a plan for printing some 
of tfiis manuscript material.

Haverford, Pennsylvania. 

While this library contains a large amount of printed material relating to 
the history of the Friends, including considerable pamphlet literature, it con- 
tains almost no material coming within the scope of this Inventory except a 
few letters and other papers contained in the Charles Roberts Autograft 
Collection. This collection consists of several thousand letters and other manu- 
scripts in the handwriting or with the signatures of British and American 
celebrities in the field of literature, art, politics, war, and in almost every 
phase of public activity. While it was evidently the desire of the collector to 
make the collection as comprehensive as possible, letters that contained some- 
thing of interest were preferred to others which might have autographic value 
only. The collection is classified according to the general position or profes- 
sion of the writers. While other portions of the collection might contain in- 
cidentally material related to American religious history, only those classified 
as " American Prelates " and " American Oergymen " have been examined, 
and only such as contained data within our field have been listed here. These 
are arranged according to the denominational standing of the writers, all of 
whom were ministers.

The Library of the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Mt. Airy, 


This ministerium is the oldest Lutheran synod in America, having been 
organized in 1748. It bears the name " Ministerium " because as first or- 
ganized, it consisted only of the ministers, though laymen were present to 
report for the churches. Lay representation began in 1792, but the old name 
of the synod has been continued. 

The archives have been systematically kept and are quite complete from 
1801 onward. They have recently been transferred to a fire-proof vault in 
the new library building of the Lutheran Theological Seminary. There is a 
manuscript catalc^^e of the archives which enters somewhat more into de- 
tails than does this Inventory, but it does not contain reference to all of the 
unofficial papers which are to be found among the archives material. 


Miscellaneous documents relating to the General G)uncil. 

Halle Documents. These consist of four volumes of transcripts from the 
archives in Halle a. S., being " Copies taken from the letters, reports, 
opinions, correspondence, etc., of the Lutheran Missionaries in Penn- 
sylvania durin|f 1745- 1785, which letters were procured . . . from 
the Halle Archives ... in the years 1879-1883 ". There is a catalc^^e 
of these in the archives, each volume also containing an alphabetical

The collection known by this name consists of journals, correspondence, and 

other papers of Rev. Dr. Henry Melchior Mtihlenberg. There is a fairly com- 
plete manuscript catalogue of the collection in the archives. 

The journals of Muhlenberg begin with that of his voyage to America, 
1742, and continue, with some omissions, to June 16, 1785. Scattered through 
them are letters and copies of letters. The collection is catalogued, the mate- 
rial being divided into forty-two groups, numbered from i to 36, with six in- 
serted numbers (2i\ 29", 30", 31", 32", 33"). It will not be necessary to list 
the journals in detail, but some of the special journals, letters, and other papers 
are given below, the number in ( ) referring to the group in which the mate- 
rial is to be found in the archives. In most cases a portion of the journals is 
to be found in the group in addition to the material listed ; any group not listed 
below consists of a portion of the journal only. 

(2) Four letters, 1747- 1750, and an account of the Nyberg case.

covered by the records and other papers listed, and in cases of doubt, giving 
preference to the earlier organization, it is quite likely that there are some 
inaccuracies in the arrangement

Witherspoon Building, Walnut Street, Philadelphia. 

The history of the organization of this society in 1852, and of its later work, 
may be found in Rev. Dr. William L. Ledwith's The Record of Fifty Years, 
1852-1902: Historical Sketch of the Presbyterian Historical Society, published 
by the society in 1902. It is there stated that the first definite step toward the 
collection of historical materials was taken in 1791, when a committee of the 
General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America 
was appointed ** to devise measures for the collecting of materials necessary 
for a history of the Presbyterian Church in North America ". This com- 
mittee reported the next day, May 24, stating the kinds of information de- 
sired and advising that the materials collected be deposited with the clerk at 
the next meeting of the General Assembly. In 1853 by vote of the General 
Assembly it was 

" Resolved, That the General Assembly commit all the manuscript material 
which has been collected in past years under their authority to the custody of 
the Presbyterian Historical Society." 

This had been organized the previous year in connection with the meeting 
of the General Assembly in Charleston, South Carolina. It was decided to 

200 Pennsylvania: Philadelphia 

locate the library of the society in Philadelphia, so the society was incorporated 
in Pennsylvania. The charter granted by the legislature in 1857 recognized 
the interest in the society of the various divisions of Presbyterianism in Amer- 
ica and now the Churches represented in the society are those included in the 
"Alliance of Reformed Churches holding the Presbyterian System", vis., 
the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America (the Northcm 
Church), including the Cumberland Presbyterian Church; the Presbyterian 
Church in the United States (the Southern Church) ; the Reformed Church 
in the United States (German Reformed) ; the Reformed Church in America 
(Dutch Reformed) ; the United Presbyterian Church of North America; the 
Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America ; the General 
Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America ; the Welsh 
Calvinistic Methodist Church of the United States; and the Associate Re- 
formed Presbyterian Synod of the South. 

The Presbyterian Historical Society occupies commodious quarters on the 
fifth floor of the Witherspoon Building where fire-proof safes afford protection 
to the more valuable manuscript material. A modem card catalogue makes 
the printed and manuscript material alike easily accessible. 

In addition to the material listed below there is a collection of about 600 
historical sketches of local Presbyterian churches, in many cases consisting 
of historical sermons on anniversary and other occasions. In 1876, in response 
to a concerted movement, many pastors preached sermons tracing the history 
of Presbyterianism in the local community, afterwards sending in their manu- 
scripts to this society. Approximately two-thirds of the number noted above 
are the result of this centennial observance. As doubtless many of these ser- 
mons and historical sketches have been printed in local papers and in other 
forms, and as later similar material is constantly being added to the collection, 
it seems unnecessary to list them here in detail

" The Religious Petitions, a collection of several hundred papers relating 
to the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Vir^nia and the subsequent 
politico-religious controversies. The petitions begin with a Presbyterian paper 
of 1774 and cover the last quarter of the century. They were written in favor 
of disestablishment and against it and on both sides of the question of a gen- 
eral assessment to support all the churches, and church incorporation. Many 
of the petitions are denominational, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Baptist, 
Quaker, Lutheran, Methodist, Mennonite." 


Walla Walla, Washington. 

The librarian reports some miscellaneous manuscripts, such as historical 

sketches, of local bearing only. 


Madison, Wisconsin. 

A Descriptive List of Manuscript Collections of the State Historical Society 
of Wisconsin together with Reports on other Collections of Manuscript Mate- 
rial for American History in adjacent States, edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites, 
LL. D., secretary and superintendent of the society, was published by the soci- 
ety in 1906. Apart from the biographical material relating to some early mis- 
sionaries and some data concerning early churches in the Northwest there is 
relatively littie in this extensive manuscript collection which concerns Ameri- 
can religious history. Special mention may be made of the Brant Manuscripts 
(22 vols.), being materials gathered by Lyman C. Draper in preparation for a 
proposed biography of Joseph Brant, the Mohawk chief who was educated at 
Wheclock's Indian School (cf, Wheelock Collection, Dartmouth College, Han- 
over, New Hampshire), and also the Shane Collection. The two volumes of 
the latter which deal particularly with religious history, however, are at the 
Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia. 

210 Wisconsin: Milton 

" Among much other missionary material there are the journals and letter 
books of Rev. Alfred Brunson, a pioneer Methodist circuit rider and Indian 
agent ; and Rev. Cutting Marsh, representative of the American Board and 
of the Scottish S. P. C K." (Descriptive List, p. 113.) The Descriptive List 
refers also to manuscript material relating to " rubrics, religious matters, 
churches and the several denominations. Some letters in addition and also 
journals relating to early Protestant missions in Wisconsin, particularly the 
diaries and letters of Joshua Kemper, first Protestant Episcopal bishop to the 


Milton, Wisconsin. 

The librarian reports a few records of churches (Seventh-day Baptist), 
Sabbath schools, statistics of churches, historical sketches, journals, corre- 
spondence, biographical data, and sermons. For the most part the material 
has a local bearing only. 


Nashota House, Nashota, Wisconsin. 

The librarian reports sermons by the following: 

Rev. Samuel Mather, 1775 ; Dr. Rodgers of New York, 1765 ; Dr. Tap- 
pan, 1838 ; Rev. Edward Dorr Griffen, 1793 ; Rev. Stephen West, 
1779 ; Rev. Edward Dorr of Hartford ; Rev. Noah Willis, 1770, and 
others; sermon-notes of Cotton Mather, Rev. Dr. Henry KoUuck, 
Rev. Stephen Williams, 1755. 


During the progress of the work of gathering the data for this Inventory, 
Professor E. B. Krehbiel, Ph. D., now of Leland Stanford Junior University, 
prepared a letter and questionary which were sent to a number of leading 
Mennonites who would be best informed as to the documentary history of that 
religious body. The following data are compiled irom the returns which have 
been received in response to these requests for information. 

There are no established archives of the Mennonites as yet, but in 1906 the 
Eastern District Conference of Pennsylvania appointed a committee of three, 
of which Rev. N. B. Grubb, 715 Berks Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is 
chairman, to arrange for and if possible to establish a Mennonite Historical 
Bureau and Library, a movement which the General Conference has endorsed. 
Already about 500 volumes, with as many more pamphlets and other docu- 
ments, have been collected as a nucleus for the library. Recently there have 
been received a considerable number of old and rare historical books in the 
Dutch language, a gift from the General Society of Doopsgezinde (Mennon- 
ites) of Holland, through Professor Dr. S. Cramer of Amsterdam. Plans 
are being completed to secure from the libraries in Holland and Germany 

Methodist Historical Societies 211 

copies of letters and other documents having special reference to the early his- 
tory of the Mennonite Church in this country. 

The records of the General Conference are in the hands of the secretary 
of the same, while the records of the district conferences are held by their 
respective secretaries. The records of local churches are usually in the custody 
of the secretary or of the pastor of each church. Considerable manuscript 
material is in the possession of individual owners. Ex-Governor Samuel W. 
Pennypacker of Pennsylvania and John E. Roller of Harrisonburg, Virginia, 
have valuable collections. Rev. H. P. KrehUiel of Newton, Kansas, has in his 
possession all the records and much of the correspondence pertaining to the 
history of the Mennonite educational institution of higher learning which was 
located at Wadsworth, Ohio; these materials are of considerable historical 
importance, especially in connection with the development of the Mennonite 
General Conference. The late Rev. Christian Krehbiel possessed the corre- 
spondence of the first secretary of the General Conference Mission Board, 
Rev. Carl Justus van der Smissen, and also some unprinted autobiographical 
matter ; these papers are now in the care of his widow at Halstead, Kansas. 
Rev. M. S. Steiner of Columbus Grove, Ohio, president of the Mennonite 
Board of Missions and Charities, has some miscellaneous papers, including a 
manuscript volume of sermons from ministers of various states, and Ontario. 
The private library of Rev. John F. Funk of Elkhart, Indiana, also contains 
some manuscript material, but chiefly historical writings by Mr. Funk himself. 


The Methodist Year Book of 1910 gives brief accounts of nineteen Meth- 
odist historical societies, of which four were visited and the manuscript mate- 
rial listed in detail. Questionaries were sent to the others and we list here 
such of the returns as are sufficiently definite to be serviceable. 

Historical Society of the California Conference, S and 7 City Hall Avenue, 
San Francisco, California. 
A small collection of diaries, biographical notes. Quarterly Conference re- 
cords, sermons, etc., collected since the organization of the society in 1874.

Seminary, Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Cincinnati Conference Historical Society, 220 West Fourth Street, Gncin- 
nati, Ohio. 
This Society reports some local records and some biographical material per- 
taining to members of the conference. 

The Historical Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Nebraska, Uni- 
versity Place, Nebraska. 
Besides a number of historical sketches, there is a file of reminiscences of 
early settlers, taken stenographically. 

Ohio Methodist Historical Society, Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, 

212 North Carolina: Winston-Salem 

This society has several records of churches and of the Ohio Conference, 
with some diaries, journals, and correspondence, including a considerable 
number of letters of early Methodist leaders in Ohio. 

Troy Conference Historicat Society, State Street Methodist Episcopal Church, 
Troy, New York. 
This society indicated that it had some material of each class represented 
in the questionary. (See introduction.) 

Wyoming Conference Historical Society, Kingston, Luzerne County, Penn- 
This society reports that it has some records of local churches and other 
religious associations, historical sketches, and some biographical material, in- 
cluding diaries and correspondence. 

Wyoming Mission Historical Society, Sheridan, Wyoming. 

Historical sketches of many of the mission stations and biographical data 
of the ministers of the conference, together with conference statistics. 


A number of the diocesan headquarters of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
were visited; in each case an examination of the archives showed little of 
broad historical interest, most of the documents dealing with the administra- 
tive matters within the diocese. For the history of the several dioceses and of 
parishes within each diocese, the diocesan archives will contribute considerable 
material; confirmation lists, ordination documents, the diocesan correspond- 
ence, reports from mission stations (in many cases later organized as par- 
ishes), occasional records of extinct parishes, papers of the Standing Com- 
mittee — ^these are the typical contents of these archives so far as examined. 
There is some biographical material, especially in connection with the ordina- 
tion papers and in some of the correspondence concerning bishops-elect. 


The Wachovian archives of the Moravian Church at Winston-Salem were 
through inadvertence passed over in the collecting of material for this Inven- 
tory and no report upon them appears in their proper place under North 
Carolina. A comprehensive account of them has been furnished by Miss 
Adelaide L. Fries, who has used them extensively for historical purposes. 
Her letter follows : 

Winston-Salem, N. C. 

Nov. 5, 1910. 
Mr. /. F. Jameson, 

Dear Sir: 

I am sorry to say that there is no catalogue of the manuscripts in our Wach- 
ovian Archives. German was the official language of the Settlement until 
about 1856, which has probably hindered proper modern methods, as tlie lan- 
guage has unfortunately been largely lost in the community. From my own 
acquaintance with the Records I can give you an outline of some things, but 

North Carolina: WinstOH'Salem 213 

there are many papers over which I have had no time to look. When I wished 
to write a history of the Moravians in Georgia some years ago, I secured 
copies of the original Diaries preserved in Hermhut, Germany, and of all 
references I could find elsewhere. As this antedated Wachovia we naturally 
had nothing original. From 1753 on we have the daily diary kept by the lead- 
ing minister. It deals largely with the Church side of life, but there are 
occasional entries of more general interest. Dr. Qewell's History of Wach- 
ovia was based on a careful studv of these diaries. With the diaries are nu- 
merous memoirs, it having been customary (and it still is in the Salem Mora- 
vian Church) to prepare a brief sketch of each member who died, read the 
sketch at the funeral, and then file it away. There are also numerous " Bei- 
lage ", accounts of the celebration of special days, etc., anything which seemed 
to demand more space than could properly be taken In the diaries. To*this 
class also belong certain historical sketches, written for use on special anni- 
versary days, etc. The sketch of the earlier years of the Revolutionary War, 
written by Traugott Bagge, in which occurs the reference to the Mecklen- 
burg Declaration of Independence, belongs to this class. Besides the diaries 
there are at least three complete sets of Minute Books dating from about 
1772 on. Some matters seem to have passed from one Board to another, so 
that it is a little difficult to give clear-cut boundaries to their activities, but 
the " Gemcin Rath " — Congregation Council — discussed all questions which 
seemed to affect the entire Congregation ; the " Aeltesten Conferenz " — 
Elders' Conference — had the oversight of the spiritual and social well-being 
of the church members ; while the " Aussehcr Collegium " — Board of Ward- 
ens — ^was Finance Committee and Board of Aldermen for the village. In 
the course of time the latter became the Board of Trustees, retaining the 
financial responsibilities, though municipal affairs passed into the hands of 
civil officials. There is a g^eat deal of interesting local history in these 
" Protocollc ", but probably the parts of general interest are references to the 
currency, and prices of various commodities. Of equal value for local history 
are the Journals and Ledgers of the Congregation in Salem, from 1772 on. 
There are also the Ledgers, etc., of the " Single Sisters' Diacony ", and 
" Single Brothers' Diacony ". I have spent a good deal of time this summer 
in gathering material for a sketch of the " Single Sisters' House " which 
belongs to die former, dating from 1785. Besides this there is a large col- 
lection of " Nachrichten ", reports from Moravian congregations all over the 
world, which were copied in Germany, and sent regularly to all the larger 
Moravian settlements, predecessors of the modern church papers and mis- 
sionary magazines. There are also manuscript copies of the proceedmgs of 
General Synods of the Moravian Church, and some printed books, largely of 
an early date, early from the standpoint of our local history I mean ; there 
seems to have been little effort to add modem Moravian books, and for 
those we have to turn to our Sunday School library, or our own collections. 
There are several other closets full of papers which I must admit I have not 
had time to examine. You see I have no official connection with the care of 
the Archives, and what work I have done has been purely con amore, and 
frequently interrupted. There are a few papers in some of our other Mora- 
vian congregations, but I know little about them, and the more important 
seem to have been deposited at Salem, which was the official centre.
