Description
 
A handbound grouping of three issues of the Religious Intelligencer, an Evangelistic serial publication which ran between 1816 and 1835. Includes Vol. VIII, No. 18-20, which were published in October 1823. The majority of the publication has variety of letters and reports of missionary societies and their work all over the world. For example, there are excerpts from Rev. Joseph Wolff's journal from his mission to the Jews in Palestine in 1821-1822 and excerpts from a mission on the "Great Osage Mission" which sent missionaries to Kansas to convert the people of the Osage Nation. In addition to these missionary excerpts are updates or histories on local religious societies and schools. For example there is a reprinted of the first report of the Merchant Seaman's Bible Society and a list of recitations performed during the "Exercises of the Annual Examination of the Theological Seminary [in Andover, CT], Department of Sacred Literature, Junior Class." There are also small sections of poetry and morality stories such as "Christ the Sinner's Refuge" and "Slave Anecdote". Each issue is approximately fifteen pages. |Of more significant note, the make-do covers of this  grouping  is a page from the May 30, 1820 edition of the Hartford Courant with announcements and promotions.  Newspaper wrappers. String binding. Measures 9 3/4" x 6 3/4".
