Overview and metadata sections

The Society of Friends or Quakers (the terms are synonymous) was founded in the middle of the seventeenth century in England by George Fox and others. American Quaker activity has been documented in Massachusetts and Virginia as early as 1656. By the time William Penn's colony, Pennsylvania (whose lower counties became Delaware) was founded in 1681, Quakerism was well established in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Long Island, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. In 1827-1828, there was a major split among Quakers which resulted in two factions known as Hicksite and Orthodox. Further fragmentation occurred later in the 19th century, particularly in the Midwest. Many of the branches of Quakerism have reunited.

Friends Historical Library Miscellaneous Manuscripts is an on-going collection. Before the era of digital surrogates, it included primary and some secondary documents, original manuscripts and photocopies, by and about Quakers and of the Society of Friends and its testimonies. The collection includes significant holdings relevant to antislavery, peace, temperance, women's rights, penal reform, and other social concerns of Quakers in the United States and in England. More recently, "Miscellaneous Manuscripts" has become more selective in regard to secondary materials and photocopies. For example, genealogical and reference articles are now sorted by reference categories for better access.

The collection is organized into two series: Dated Manuscripts in chronological order and Undated Manuscripts in alphabetical order.

This finding aid was coded from the original typed catalogue cards, and the terminology of form is not always precise. This is particularly true when describing copies of the original material; for example, the terms facsimile and photocopy are sometimes used interchangeably, as well as photostat and other early copying formats. Description of originals is much more consistent.

Note that the location given in the title is location of origin of the document, and not, in the case of correspondence, the address of the recipient.

[Draft of letter], Philadelphia, to Mott, Lucretia., 1840-07-21.
Box 25
Scope and Contents

Written in Philadelphia in July of 1840. The writer was a member of Cherry Street Meeting and also a member of the Anti-Slavery Society. The person writing the letter fills Mott in on news of fellow Quakers. The last paragraph is interesting: "Our peerless Clerk S[arah] H[opper] Palmer performs her part well, aided by our valuable young friend [Hannah?] Haydock two who are ably calculated to maintain and support the dignified standard of Woman, which but for a fearless few, would, I doubt not, not only fall, "but moulder as it fell." Sarah was the Clerk of Cherry Street during this period. I suspect that the writer is a woman as well. Torn at fold.
