Mellon Faculty Development Grants and a subvention from Saint Louis University have aided manuscript revisions and illustration procurement and production.

The thoughtful assistance of library staff at a number of institutions has proven invaluable. I warmly thank the librarians at the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts; American Baptist Historical Society, Rochester, New York; Library Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Gebbie Archives and Special Collections, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois; Oral Roberts University Library, Tulsa, Oklahoma; Rauner Special Collections Library, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire; Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; Vanderbilt University Library, Nashville, Tennessee; Saint Louis University Library, St. Louis, Missouri; Washington University Library, St. Louis, Missouri; Kenneth J.
