MANUSCRIPTS
NOTE: In an effort to ascertain whether or not the optimistic sentiments expressed in their published works and public speeches also prevailed in their private letters, the correspondence of some of the important figures of the Middle Period was searched for evidences of a belief in progress. Although the fruits were small in proportion to the labor involved in examining some of the manuscript collections, the results justify the conclusion that the faith in progress was sincerely held and not entertained merely for popular consumption. Library of Congress: The following manuscript collections were examined: John Quincy Adams (one vol. of letters and speeches); Joseph Blunt; Caleb Cushing (large coll. examined for period of this study); Horace Greeley; James Henry Hammond (Mss. of early orations, and letters from William Gilmore Simms and Francis Lieber); George Frederick Holmes; Francis Lieber (especially letters to Samuel B. Ruggles) ; William H. Seward; William Gilmore Simms; Letters of American Clergymen ( 1719-1873; examined for the period of this study). New York Public Library: Bryant-Godwin Papers (especially Parke Godwin's letters to Charles A. Dana, and also letters from George Bancroft, Orville Dewey, William Gilmore Simms, and Charles Sumner) Duyckinck Papers (literary correspondence).
