The collection also includes the undated, uncompleted manuscript of "The North-Americans Dispensatory," which attempts to list prescriptions and index diseases and their remedies. With the manuscript is a 1904 letter of John Calvin Lawrence Clark (1871-1936) discussing the manuscript, along with a page from a 1904 book dealer catalog listing this manuscript for sale.
There is a notebook from 1796 to 1803 that contains war poetry and other writings, including a copy of Stearns's lengthy 1796 proposal for support for his medical publications; an undated essay entitled "Medical Communications," discussing different kinds of pain; and a copy of Stearns's 1797 letter to the Providence Gazette, condemning the Connecticut medical convention for refusing to support his publications. Also included are copies of letters, from 1797 to 1799, to other physicians concerning his publications, and a copy of a 1799 petition to the King and Parliament requesting reimbursement for his losses. Also in this notebook is an undated deposition, setting forth injustices done him, and other miscellaneous material. This notebook is numbered consecutively, and follows the numbering started in the incomplete manuscript, "The North-Americans Dispensatory."
This collection of Stearns papers also include a volume of John Calvin Lawrence Clark's original manuscript of his paper on Dr. Stearns, published in the 1935 AAS Proceedings, including a bibliography of Asa Houghton (1775-1829) almanacs (Asa learned his trade from Stearns) which was not published in the Proceedings.
