Excerpt from Report of the Convention of Unitarian Churches: Held in New York, on the 5th and 6th of April, 1866; And of the Organization of the National Conference; With the Sermon Preached on That Occasion and a Register of the Churches That a committee of ten persons, three ministers and seven laymen, be appointed to call a convention, to consist of the pastor and two delegates from each church or parish in the Unitarian denomination, to meet in the city of New York, to consider the interests of our cause, and to Institute measures for its good. This resolution was welcomed with enthusiasm. It not only met the immediate necessity of the occasion, but it met an eager want which many of the ministers of the body had felt, and the practical determination, of the laymen who were present in large numbers at this meeting, that this body should take some place in the active work of the Christian Church, worthy of its principles and its prophecies. This meeting. Therefore, proved much more important than such mass meetings generally are. The resolution was cordially adopted, and those who had come together there dispersed, with the feeling that they had not only met the exigency which had summoned them, but had at least prepared the way for the organization of the Unitarian Church of America.
