Message to the Southern Baptist Convention.

May 13, 1932

I WILL BE OBLIGED if you will express my cordial greetings to the Southern Baptist Convention now in session, and my deep appreciation of the importance to the national well-being of the service of the churches in the spiritual life of the nation. I do pray that the deliberations of your convention may be fruitful of wise counsels for the benefit of our country.


[Dr. Arthur James Barton, c/o Southern Baptist Convention, St. Petersburg, Fla.]

Note: The message was read at the opening session of the organization's 77th annual convention which was held in St. Petersburg, Fla.
