Ives's correspondence while rector of St. Luke's Church, New York City, and later as Bishop, is chiefly with his close friend William R. Whittingham, both before and after Whittingham became Bishop of Maryland. Subjects include affairs of St. Luke's Church, 1831-1832, the General Theological Seminary, the New York Protestant Episcopal Press, the difficulties of Bishops Benjamin T. Onderdonk and George W. Doane, and the consecration of Stephen Elliott as Bishop of Georgia, 1840. Some letters concern Ives's interest in education and his school in Raleigh, as well as descriptions of conditions, visitations, and events in his diocese. Ives's High Church views and conversion to the Roman Catholic Church are fully covered, including papers about his deposition, 1853, and comments of several bishops thereon. Also includes later biographical materials.
