The medical archives are in poor condition, while the Western Department kept its letters in a slovenly manner. The branch files open up the problems of aid societies and present a picture of the Christian Commission as a rival. The English branch archives give the Sanitary history abroad, although these are incomplete. Letter press books from 709 to 714 have occasional items of importance; more useful for my purpose were the press copies in 833 to 842.The following collections also were used at the New York Public Library:
S. B. Ruggles MSS.
William Frothingham MSS.
