A wonderful archive of c.800 pages of legible, clear, superb manuscript sermons and addresses by Reverend Cornelius Ruster Lane D.D. [1820-1887]. He was a graduate of Princeton [1847] during the height of its experimental Presbyterian power and influence. His professors form a who's who of 19th century Presbtyerianism.

He was assigned pastor at Tunkhannock, PA in 1848. The church had been a pastor-killer. Lane thrived, preaching not only there, but at two other locations each Sabbath, glowing, "I prepare as carefully for a small group of Comanche Indians to hear the Gospel as I would for the most refined congregation in New York City." His sermons show it. They're masterful productions; equal parts careful clear exegesis, deeply experimental, and spiritually practical. 

A Presbyterian and a Calvinist through and through, others had their eye on him to help provide education for rural Pennsylvania Presbyterians that didn't involve moving to Princeton. He became principal of the Luzerne Presbyterian Institute and was its leader during its most fruitful years. Over his many years of service at Tunkhannock, the church steadily increased . . . in health as well as numerically. He was also Presbyteran of Luzerne, an education, Superintendent of Schools, and continued to preach in more than a half dozen churches on an ongoing basis to help see them revitalized.

While sermons and various essays of his have been published, the present, freshly uncovered archive, is completely unmined historically.
