Self-Interpreting Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments

The "self-interpreting" bible, with notes by Rev. John Brown, D.D., is also referred to within St. Peter's Cathedral Church as "the Wadman Bible." Inside the pages of the book are an envelope addressed to T. Edgar McNutt from William H. H. Wadman, postmarked 22 August 1963, enclosing a letter asking that the bible be put into safekeeping at St. Peter's Cathedral. William Wadman notes that the bible contains a family record of the family of Henry D. Wadman. The genealogical information itself is listed on pages between the Old and New Testaments.

St. Peter's Cathedral Church Altar Service Book

The Altar Service Book, published in 1867, is a 38 x 26 x 3.5 bound book, edited by the Reverend Frederick George Lee, DCL, FSA (1832–1902), a theological writer born at Thame, Oxfordshire, who was ordained deacon by the bishop of Oxford in 1854 and priest in 1856.

The full title of the publication is: Altar Service Book, According to the Use of the United Church of England and Ireland/ The Order for the Administration of the Holy Communion, to which are Prefixed the Tables of Feasts and Fasts, and Kalendar, with the Collects, Epistles and Gospels, to be used throughout the year; Also the order for Confirmation of Children, and the Form for the Solemnization of Holy Matrimony; Together with the Form and Manner of Making, Ordaining, and Consecrating of Bishops, Priests and Deacons, According to the Use of the United Church of England and Ireland. With the Ancient Plain Song for the Holy Communion. The publication is apparently three volumes but there is only one volume in this accession.

Included with the book is a note, by James Simpson, from sometime after September 1918, reading "This book was used in the Altar of St. Peter's Cathedral from the early days of the church until September 1918." As well, a piece of string has been retained: it is presumably the string used to tie the book during its use.
