Historical Note

"The Friend," a religious and literary Quaker publication, was founded in 1827, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as a result of the Orthodox/Hicksite split. It continued publication until 1955, when it was consolidated with "Friends Intelligencer" (Hicksite) at the reunification of the two Philadelphia Yearly Meetings to become "Friends Journal." It is unknown when, why, or by whom this index was created.
