Roger Hayden 1936-2016

I had not realised that Roger Haydn had died in March. I move in different circles. He wrote important books on Baptist history and served as a voluntary archivist at Bristol Baptist College Library. I only met him once but was impressed by his historical and more contemporary knowledge of the Baptist scene and his concerns for the future of the Baptist cause. There is an obituary here.

Gary - Hayden mentioned in his "Continuity and Change" that Beddome had gotten ahold of Jonathan Edwards's writings pretty early - by April of 1742. Are you aware of any correspondence between Edwards and Beddome?
