The papers in this collection cover a wide and curious variety of places and events--not all clear in their relationship to Cardella. Most are in Spanish (letters to and from Central America as well as sermons for his New York community), a considerable number are in Italian, many are in English. A certain number are in French. Some, as occurs with a variegated collection, have no identifiable relevance to Cardella, his life, or his interests. There are seven folders of correpondence, received and sent, with some undated drafts of letters; four folders of material for and about the Spanish community in NYC; and small amounts of teaching material, legal documents and opinions, and inscription drafts.
