The American Peace Crusade, 1815-1860

BIBLIOGRAPHY

MANUSCRIPT MATERIAL
Minutes of the New York Peace Society, 1826-1828 (Archives of the American Peace Society, Washington).
Records of the American Peace Society. Two volumes, the first covering the period July 7, 1835 to October 13, 1854, and the second the period from January 17, 1855 to May 13, 1896, are of great value. These volumes contain the minutes of the Executive Committee, of the Board of Directors, and of the Society.
Ladd Manuscripts (American Peace Society). These manuscripts consist of a Letter Book containing twenty-one letters written by Ladd to distinguished peace workers in this country and in England, and to members of his family. The letters cover the period 1827 to 1837, and abound with details of Ladd's prodigious activities in behalf of peace. These letters were not wisely used by John Hemmenway in his Memoir of William Ladd, Apostle of Peace ( Boston, 1877), since his excerpts are often unrepresentative. The second item in the Ladd Manuscripts is entitled A Memoir of William Ladd, Apostle of Peace. Second Edition, revised and enlarged. By John Hem menway ( November 10, 1890). Between 1877 and 1890, the date of this manuscript, Hemmenway collected additional letters written by Ladd, and fortunately, instead of making excerpts from them, seems to have incorporated many of them, in their entirety, together with many from which he had merely taken selections in the first and printed collection. Thus the manuscript is of far greater importance than the published Memoir. The picture of Ladd that one gets from it is not only richer in detail but actually different. Ladd appears not only as a great idealist, but as a practical man who saw actual problems and who tried to meet them in a practical way. The revised manuscript has not heretofore been used. It is not unlikely that many of Ladd's letters might still be found in England.
Elihu Burritt Papers. The larger portion of these papers is in the Library of the Institute of New Britain, New Britain, Con-
