    Conference Constitutions

    On May 21 a general conference constitution was adopted, and on the same day a State constitution was recommended to the State conferences, and adopted in a session of the Michigan Conference. These constitutions provided a numerical basis for delegate representation in the conferences and in the General Conference. There was not a dissenting voice to this plan for selecting delegates, and the sweet blessing of Cod, sensibly present, seemed to endorse the movement there made.COOD 135.4

    Thus step by step the message advanced, and each step in system and order tended to strengthen and consolidate what had already been undertaken.
