Atlanta, Ga. Jan 20, 1888
Meeting of the Board of Trustees was called at Mr. Norrman’s office and met at 6 pm.
Present: Messrs. Norrman, Lederle, Winslow, Harding, and Klingelsmith.
Mr. Lederle was chosen chairman.
He stated that the object of the meeting was to consider a portion of a letter written to Mr. A.U. Gude by Rev. Grindall Reynolds, Secretary of the America Unitarian Association, relating to the question whether the Association could expect to reduce the appropriation the coming year amicably voted for the support of our church in Atlanta.
After full discussion it was not considered best to advise any reduction this year and committee consisting of Messrs. Norrman and Klingelsmith was appointed to communicate this opinion to Mr. Reynolds, the Secy of the American Unitarian Association with a statement of the reasons controlling our decision.
The following letter was sent to the Secy of the Assn. in Boston by the committee (see letter on file) (See Archivist Note)
J.M. Klingelsmith, Sec pro Tem.
