Abstract:

Chiefly private correspondence with Maryland Bishop William Rollinson Whittingham and official papers. Manuscripts cover most of Potter's ecclesiastical career, beginning with a description of him as a student in 1826; his institution as rector of St. Peter's Parish, Albany, N.Y., 1833; and near election as Bishop of Connecticut, 1844-1846. Potter writes of many cares in Albany, ill health, church views, and doubts his qualifications to teach at General Theological Seminary. After his election as Provisional Bishop of New York, 1854, much material concerns the Episcopal Church in that state, clergy matters, work of the Sisters of Charity, and affairs of the General Theological Seminary. Potter urges Whittingham to resign his bishopric and return to the seminary, stressing its need for reform and the desirability of having a bishop at its head, with mention of George F. Seymour and Samuel R. Johnson, professors there. Civil War papers include prayers prescribed for use in the Diocese of New York, circulars about days of fasting and prayer, and correspondence on drafting clergymen for military service. After the war Potter supports the Freedmen's Aid Society and opposes the inflammatory Church Congress organized in New York. Correspondence of 1868-1869 concerns election of William C. Doane as Bishop of Albany, divisions between High and Low Churchmen, and relations with the Roman Catholic Church. Other items relate to the organization of Episcopal chapels in Europe; appeals for aid to sufferers from the Franco-Prussian War, 1870; work of the Mexican Commission of the House of Bishops, 1874-1875; relations with the Church of England, including Potter's attendance at the Lambeth Conference of 1867, his hopes for greater unity and Catholic feeling in the Anglican Communion, his dealings with English bishops, and admiration for the Reverend John Keble. Potter's letters contain many tributes to Bishop Whittingham, support for Bishop Whittingham in his troubles, and discussions of family affairs.
