In cases where an individual document (paper record, photo, audio recording, moving image recording, etc.) is online at the Archives' Website, either the description of a specific item is underlined, or this symbol -- -- appears next to a general description to indicate that an item covered by that description is online. Clicking on the symbol or the underlining will link to the item. If there are two or more of these symbols -- -- that appear by a description, the number of symbols indicates the number of items covered by the description that are online, such as several different photos from a photo file.]

Scope and Content
A two-volume diary hand-written on 222 pages by an unnamed clergyman from New Haven, Connecticut, during a trip to attend the London Missionary Society Convention. The diaries describe travel to and from the British Isles, outlines sermons heard in churches in England and Scotland, comments on reports delivered to the Society, and reports contacts with British and American clergyman, including Henry Ward Beecher. Includes also descriptions of his visits in London, Paris, and cities in southern France, the Riviera coast, Italy, and Scotland.
The materials for this collection were received by the Center in March 1983 from Terry Alford of the Manuscript Company of Springfield, Virginia.
