Excerpt from Journals of General Conventions of the Protestant Episcopal Church, Vol. 3: In the United States, Published by Authority of General Convention

The present volume is mainly the reproduction in print of a collection of previously unpublished documents and letters illustrating the history of the period of the organization of the American Church. These papers, drawn largely from the correspondence 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 MSS., in the possession of the families of Bps. Seabury 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 allusion which 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 letters are of peculiar interest and importance. By their aid we can trace step by step, the development of the principles underlying our present system of government. We are admitted, as it were, into the councils of those who gave us our Church in the form and perfectness it now possesses. We hear in their own words and 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.
