Summary
Correspondence, 1846-1893 (bulk 1858-1880), of the editors of the RELIGIOUS HERALD, particularly Alfred Elijah Dickinson, with a few letters addressed to Jeremiah Bell Jeter. Most of the antebellum and Civil War letters concern colporteurs. The post-war correspondence relates primarily to accounts of individuals and corporate subscribers and advertisers. There are a few items dealing with the affairs of the Southern Baptist Convention. Also includes letters from John Albert Broadus, a manuscript of Broaddus’ "The Revised New Testament: General Remarks" (ca. 1866), a group of articles by Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry, and articles and reviews by Jeremiah Bell Jeter

Biographical or historical data
The RELIGIOUS HERALD was established in 1828 as an organ of the Baptist Church. The paper was conceived as "common medium of communication among Baptists" and was distributed in Virginia, and other Southern States. From 1857-1865, it was published by D. Shaver & Company. In the spring of 1865 the publication was suspended. Reverend Jeremiah Bell Jeter and Reverend Alfred Elijah Dickinson resumed publication in October 1865. After the death of Jeter, Dickinson became editor-in-chief of the RELIGIOUS HERALD and then president of The Religious Herald Company. In 1898 the paper was changed to periodical format and size. In the late 1850's, Alfred Elijah Dickinson, pastor of the Baptist Church in Charlottesville, served as Superintendent of Baptist Colportage in Virginia, and as General Agent of Army colportage during the Civil War.
