Contains six letters, a postcard, a memorandum, and an artist's proof of an 1857 engraved portrait of Newman.
This small collection consists of six letters, a memorandum, a post card with Newman's hymn "Lead Kind Light" embroidered in silk, and an artist's proof of an 1857 engraved portrait of Newman [portrait missing 11-21-2002]. All of the letters are in Newman's hand but one undated letter signed by Oxford Union members. Three letters to Henry Edward Manning (September 4, 1836, January 16, 1840, October 14, 1843) discussed theological issues, and one undated letter from Newman to the Reverend Dawson Turner concerns the education of Catholic youth at the Oratory's school in Birmingham. The letter signed by the Oxford Union members is in regard to the members presenting a copy of Newman's Parochial Sermons to the Library of the Society.
