1 H[OSE who are familiar with the his
tory of the Distribution of the Bible in
South Carolina remember that in December,
IM9, a Convention composed of Delegates
from or different local BIaL SOCIETEs. was
held at Columbia; w hich resulted, it is ielieved,
ini the subsequent idupply of alnost every pert
of the State, with colies of the Word of Gad.
It is apprehended, however, that the chaniges
go often taking place in our population, together
with othercamseq. rendered it necessary that the
saiC landable object should again be underta
ken. Accordingly another Convention was
proposed to be held at the same place in De
cember, 1837, which, from untoward circum
tances. fit led of effect.
As there is grouind for apprehending, that the
need for continued and active exertions in this
great and good cause, is scarcely in any degree
diminished, the Bible Society of Charleston,
respectfully invites all kindred Societies
Throughout the State, and the friids of the ob
ject generally. to nppoiit anid send Delegates,
to a Convention proposed to meetat Columbia,
on the first Tuesday iii December next, for the
purpose of devising and carrying omit such
measures as may be deemed best suited to sup
ply, and keep supplied, every reading individ
ual in the commonweath. willing to receive it,
withm a complete copy oftie Holy Scriptures.
The object comametids itself, we trust, to most
who are friendly to the best interests of their
follow-men. Editors in the State, are respect
fully reqeste-i to give this paper an early and
pronminent insertion in their columns; and Cler
gymen whosm apprinobatimn it may meet, are
earnestly solicited to read it publicly to their
congregations, ait an early (late. and to co-ope
rate m the measures proposed, in such way as
they may dmem best.
