Reuben Rockwell was a farmer in, and a State senator for, Colebrook, Connecticut. The first items in this collection are a series of political letters. One from Rockwell to Daniel Ryan in March 1863, referred to the Copperheads as "Secession Traitors", described an exciting campaign for our election and had no kind words for Thomas Seymour. A letter to Rockwell from O. Loomis was also political in content, and the soldier wished he could be at home to help with the campaign and cast his vote. The bulk of the collection consists of transcriptions of records of town meetings, 1780-1787, and a history of the church along with transcriptions of baptismal records, and lists of members of the church with biographical notes about them

Hawes was minister at the First Church in Hartford, Connecticut. The letters are from a variety of individuals on assorted topics. Two request recommendations, one for a girl's school in New York City and one for a man who was a candidate for pastor of a church in New Jersey. Jane R. Bulkley requested she be dismissed from the church since she had moved permanently to New York. E.C. Wines of Providence, Rhode Island, decried the "madness" of the gold rush to California and informed Hawes that he was now going to take up preaching. William Slade requested Hawes to give an address to teachers who were preparing to go West. Hawes also heard from the American Bible Society and from the directress of the Center Missionary Circle, which he evidently had criticized at one time. The lectures, dated 1849-1850, were on the topic of religious experience and were drafted on sheets of paper taken from letters, as they each bear his address on one side

Raw data, research notes, and a final paper on church admissions in Connecticut between 1640 and 1799. The thesis of the paper was that the use of the jeremiad style of preaching was not directly related to a stagnation or decline in church membership. Using data on church admissions from extant colonial church records, Schwartz concludes that there was no direct correlation
