MINUTES OF THE SIXTY-SECOND SESSION OF THE STATE CONVENTION OF THE BAPTIST DENOMINATION IN SOUTH CAROLINA, HELD WITH THE DARLINGTON BAPTIST CHURCH, NOVEMBER 23-26, 1882.

Greenville, S.C. Baptist Courier Book and Job Office. 1882. Original printed wrappers [worn, chipped], stitched, 46pp. Good+. Detailed minutes of the convention's doings, with much hand-wringing over "the spiritual condition and religious instruction of the colored people, who form so large a part of the population of the State." A Report, however, advises that "the present practical difficulties...are too numerous and too serious to permit us to engage as an organization at this time in the work...Except the Levering Manual Labor Mission School among the Creek Indians, Southern Baptists are doing nothing in the way of educating the Indians and negroes." FIRST EDITION. Not in Turnbull. Item #9466
