In September the Moravian Archives gratefully received an initial $1000 contribution from Wachovia Historical Society President I. B. Southerland towards what will be a $5000 gift. In late 2017 WHS pledged $1000 in annual support for five years to the Moravian Archives Book Fund. Monies will subsidize publication costs of the Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees book series. Volume 9 in that series is nearing printing this fall. A tenth volume, through September 1838, is anticipated in the first half of next year.
