AMERICAN BAPTIST CIRCULAR LETTERS


      "When Associations were first organized in this country the isolated condition of the churches, the difficulty and expense of communication whether by messengers or by mail and the entire absence of religious periodicals invested the Circular Letter with an importance and an authority of which but the shadow remains. Its chief office was instruction on important questions of the day. . . ." - George B. Peck, Rhode Island, 1874

      In 1777, a British Baptist Association (Rutlandshire) referred to a Circular Letter as "a body of divinity in miniature." - Jim Duvall
