Scope and Content

These are journals containing articles pertaining to the Van Missions of the Unitarians and the Methodists. The article about the Methodists is suggested in a letter from the editor of the Unitarian Historical Society to provide a good comparison to the Unitarian Van Mission, and the piece contains a summary of the history of the Methodist Van Mission and its activities and successes. The other two are concerned with the Unitarian Van Mission, one being the general history of the Mission written by John Roberts in 1978 and the other being a 1918 piece concerned with the life of Spedding and his work with the Mission.
