AMERICAN UNITARIAN ASSOCIATION,
PROCEEDINGS OF THE ANNUAL MEETING,
MAY 25, 1847.
111 Washington STREET.
Price 4 Cents.
The Twenty-second Anniversary of the American Unitarian Association was celebrated on Tuesday, May 25th, 1847.
The meeting for business was in the chapel of the Church of the Saviour, Hon. Richard Sullivan, one of the Vice-Presidents, in the chair. Prayers were offered by Rev. Mr. Osgood, of Providence. The records of the last annual meeting were read. The first question that came up was upon the acceptance of the act of incorporation, obtained in obedience to a vote of last year ; but as it appeared, on inquiry, that the notice for the meeting had not been legally given, it was simply voted to be expedient for the Association to adopt an act of incorporation like the one which had been procured. · Under this vote the Association conducted its business, with the understanding that it was hereafter to be ratified and confirmed at a meeting to be called according to the statute.
Rev. Mr. Lothrop, in behalf of the Executive Committee, submitted for adoption some by-laws. They were
taken up separately and discussed, and a part of them were adopted.
The meeting was then adjourned to the Channing Street vestry, at six o'clock, P. M.
At this meeting the Treasurer's Report was read and accepted.
