Book Description:
JOURNALS OF GENERAL CONVENTIONS OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH, IN THE UNITED STATES, 1874,. HISTORICAL NOTES UTD DOCUhIENB ILLUSTRATING THE ORGANIZATION OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH, IN THE UNITED STATES OF ABIERICA. BY TVlLLIAiN STEVENS PERRY, D. D., HlSTORIOGRAPHER OF THE AMERICAN CHURCH. CLAREXOHT, N. H THE CLAREYONT BXANUFACTURINO COXFANY. 1874. PREFACE. The present volume is mainly the reproduction in print of a collection of previously unpublished documents and letters il lustrating the history of the period of the organization of the American Church. These papers, drawn largely from the cor respondence and collections of the venerable Bishop White, preserved to the Church by the care of the late Francis Lister Hawks, D.D., LL. D., have been supplemented by the use of important 3ISS., in the possession of the families of Bps. Sea bury and Parker. It will be borne in mind that these papers and letters were written with no thought of preservation, much less of publication, after an interval of nearly a hundred years. They are the more valuable from the freedom of style and al lusioll rhich gives to epistolary correspondence its special charm. As illustrating the history of the measures which brought about our ecclesiastical independence and secured the formation of our present Ecclesiastical Constitution, these let ters are of peculiar interest and importance. By their aid we can trace step by step, the development of the principles U derlying our present system of government. We are admitted, as it wcre, into the councils of those who gave us our Church in the form and perfectness it now possesses. We hear in their own words a11d in fullest detail the reasons for their legislation and the explanation of their course of action. The editor has been at pains to group together these interesting papers, adding only enough of his own to supply deficiencies in the narrative and to elucidate that which required explanation. It is with peculiar pleasure that he can state in this connection that the volume as liow produced mm carefully read in BISS., and whol ly approved, by the late Dr. IIamks, the Historiographer of the American Church, prior to his too early death. Not a letter appears on these pages without having received his examination, and it is mith the sanction of his revered and honored name that these papers are given to the Church. The press of duties incident upon the care of a large parish, together with the requirements of other o5cial relations to the Church,must be the excuse for many imperfections in this work of which no one can be more sensible than the editor himself. He craves the indulgence of his readers for these infelicities of style, and for the occasional typographical errors which, iu view of the impossibility of his supervision in person of these pages as they passed through the press, mere inevitable. If the work, the preparation of which has been wholly a labor of love, and for which the writer asks no other remuneration than the kind approbation of his brebhren of the clergy and laity, shall serve to acquaint those who care to learn mith the principles of our constitutional history, the labor of years mill not be in vain. For the Church of God he would gladly spend and be spent. Triuity Rectory, Geneva, October 5, 1874. I TA3LE OF CONTENTS. .......................... THE PRELIIISARY CONVESTIOXS, .3 68.
