Consists of letters received and signed copies (transcripts, handwritten) of letters sent by James Manning, receipts, accounts, inventories, a journal, a history of Rhode Island College written (ms.) by Manning, and catalogs of books. The collection documents the early history of Brown University (Rhode Island College), particularly Manning's presidency, his efforts to raise funds (subscriptions) from Baptists for support of the college and to obtain books for the college library; and the discussion of religion by Baptist clergy in America and Great Britain. Subjects related to Brown University history include the decision to locate the college in Providence, the need for library books and sources for books, the occupation of the college edifice by American and French troops during the Revolution, and employment of faculty. Subjects related to the the Baptist church include the Philadelphia Baptist Association, the First Baptist Church in Providence, local revivals, the condition of and attitudes toward religion in America and Great Britain, including controversies between Baptists, Presbyterians, and other denominations, responses to texts published by clergy, and actions in Great Britain that were unfavorable to the church. Manning traveled in New England, Pa., N.J., and N.Y., and often preached along the route. In 1779 he visited West Point, N.Y., and met several notable figures of the Revolutionary War, including George Washington
