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.
