Papers of Clement Clarke Moore [manuscript], 1826-1861.

The papers contain five letters in which: Moore declines to serve on the Joint Committee of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church on the Psalms in Metre because he does not believe in changing the Psalms; requests admission of a boy, Henry Gillingham, to Nazareth Hall, an academy in Nazareth, Pennsylvania; declines an invitation from his cousin, President Moore of Columbia College; and declines to be a pallbearer at the funeral of Mr. Erben because of poor health. There is also a document: the deed of sale of a lot in New York City which was sold by Moore and his wife to Obadiah Smith in 1826.
