This series of images are courtesy of JStor and meet their copyrights as covered under Terms and Conditions of Use for Early Journal Content.  The images herein displayed come from various articles published in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography published in 1903, 1904 and 1905.  For specific volume and issue number see each series herein represented.  Each image was OCRed and the resultant text placed within a hidden HTML element, facilitating the search engine of this site.

This series of images represents the translations, in part, from the German to English of several diaries of Moravian missionaries of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania during their travels through Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.  They are a wealthy of knowledge for German Baptist Brethren historians and researchers and are thus brought together for the first time.  Assuredly a debt of gratitude is owed to Rev. William J. Hinke and Charles E. Kemper.

Note:  though the last image in this series states that the series was to be continued, it never was.  A search thru 1912 of The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography failed to locate the continuation.
