Getting ready for GA: Looking back at Providence

So, General Assembly is this month. I thought I’d begin my preparations by looking back to the last time we were in Providence. Not the Unitarian Universalist Association, of course. This is our first General Assembly there. But the Universalist General Convention met in Providence in 1842, 1858, 1868, 1878 and 1923.

So I’m looking for interesting mementos — I’ve already found a sermon — from those meetings. And I’ll post (or link) what I find here.
(Alas, I’ll probably also prove my point that very few people read this kind of thing.)

  1. Not sure where one would look for such things from up here in Vermont. If I weren’t a full time caregiver, I’d head down to Barre and see what our State Convention delegates might have said, brought back, done. If I were feeling ambitious, I’d try to deep-google for newspaper reports, starting with The New York Times. But, again, alas, other obligations impede.
