The Westminister Assembly Transcription Project is an effort to make the “unpublished manuscript writings of the Westminister Assembly and its members as freely and widely avaialable as possible.” Manuscripts written by members of the assembly were found, including correspondence, petitions, personal library lists, unpublished books, and early drafts of published works.
