In Deacon John R. Logan's Sketches, Historical and Biographical, of the Broad River and King's Mountain Baptist Associations, from 1800 to 1880 is a very comprehensive account of circular letters of those two associations, with complete lists of the letters, their subjects and writers, while in connection with biographical sketches of the writers, the circular letters are often published in full, but sometimes with abridgement.
