After the meeting in Pha & the issuing the
address, a copy of which I sent you, the subject
was brought before our Dioceses by the Bishops
respectively & endorsed by our conventions. Trustees were
elected according to the original idea & a meeting for
organization appointed on the 4th July. That meeting
was held, the organization completed & a committee
of one from each state appointed to collect information
on the subject of a location & another to prepare
a charter. These committees were to report to an
adjourned meeting at Montgomery, Ala. on the 25th
ult. A copy of the proceedings of the meeting
on the 4th July with the admirable address of the
Bishop of Tennessee, (every word of which I endorse {all underlined})
I herewith send you. You will perceive, while it
looks to catering for our own immediate wants it
breathes a spirit of broad {illegible}.

The meeting at Montgomery has just been held.
All the Dioceses were represented. The old north state
by a full Delegation, with the exception of our friend
Judge Ruffin, whose absence I very much deplored. He
was detained I've heard by the sickness of Mrs. {illegible}
Much differences of opinion were expressed as to
details, as was to be expected, but the meeting was
entirely harmonius & the results satisfactory. We
accomplished the two objects for which we met
chiefly, to wit, giving it "a local habitation, & a name".
