undated, circa 1905-1919


This manuscript consists of six half-size pages held together with a straight pin. The contents appear to be early attempts to develop a sermon on “The Hope for a New Age.” Each page of the manuscript in individuated in this transcription between horizonal lines. On inspection, the pages as pinned together appeared to be out of order. The scan of the manuscript and the transcription presents the pages in a more sensible order with three parts: (1) an outline sketch (1 page); (2) A first version of the sketch of the sermon (2 pages); (3) A second version of the sketch of the sermon (3 pages).

The primary downloadable document contains the original document followed by the transcription. The bottom of each item page also features the primary document as an embedded pdf for browsing.
