Small Collection 043 Records of the American Tract Society
Scope and Contents
This collection contains a few handwritten letters of the American Tract Society dealing mostly with activities of the Society in New York and Eastern Canada. Most of the correspondence is between the Rochester, Niagara and Toronto Societies; however, there is one interesting note from London. Another unusual item was an enclosure in a handbill announcing the services of one Rev. Bliss, who conducted seminars on "God's Providential Care of our Country..." Correspondents include Robert Sharp, Yates Hickey, Robert Conner, and Arthur Wickson.
