Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

This undated prayer book contains handwritten prayers and devotions. Several of the pieces are written to honor the Virgin Mary, indicating that the author might have been English Catholic. There is no information, however, identifying the author or the time and place where these prayers were written. The name F. Molloy is written in pencil inside the front cover, and there are several pencil drawings on the blank pages of the book that were drawn by a child, probably in the 20th century.
