Charles Kingsley, 1819-1875, was a noted English author, clergyman of the Church of England, professor at Queen's College, Oxford, and one of the founders of Christian Socialism in England.
This collection consists of two letters, a postcard, and two poems.
The first item is a letter addressed to a Mrs. Tennant, detailing Kingsley's
preaching schedule and expressing the hope that she will come to hear him
when he next preaches in London. The next letter is addressed to Sampson
Sawyer of Birmingham and discusses a hymn. The postcard is addressed
to Sawyer and notes a future correspondence. An untitled poem deals
with a building, possibly a church or home for the poor, and asks God to
bless those in the building. A final poem is "The Dead Church."
