Southern Baptist Convention

RESOLVED, That the pastors of our churches be affectionately requested to impart to the colored members of their charges information to relation to the African missions of the Convention, and to secure their cooperation, as far as practicable in sustaining them.

RESOLVED, That we regard the instruction of our colored population, as a duty imperatively incumbent upon us as Southern christians; that we regard the preaching of the word of God as the best means of discharging this duty, and we earnestly recommend our churches, to devote a stated portion of their public exercises to the particular instruction of colored persons in the truths of the Bible.
