INTRODUCTION.

THE following pages are issued in accordance with a vote of the Directors of the American Congregational Association, at their meeting holden February 20, 1873.

The services herein detailed were conducted in Pilgrim Hall on the fourth floor of the Congregational House. In it and in the adjoining committee room, seats were provided to accommodate six hundred and eleven persons. These were all occupied, and in the doorways and corridors were many standing. The close and patient attention of such a crowded audience for over three hours gave unequivocal testimony to the pertinency and ability of the several performances.

The superadded sketch of the origin and progress of the Association to the present, is intended to give the reader some idea of the work done, and the obstacles encountered in gaining the results already assured.

The Charter, Constitution, and By-Laws, together with a list of the Officers of the Association, will be a convenience to those who may wish to know its basis and present working force.
