Bishop Hobart to the Convention of the Diocese of New-York: Read at a Meeting of Said Convention, in Trinity Church, New-York, on Wednesday, October 22, 1823The frequent recurrence, during the last spring and summer, of the sickness which so seriously interrupted the discharge of my official duties during the preceding year, has prevented much attention to them through the past season. The state of my health is considered by my physicians and friends to require a sea voyage, and a complete relaxation from official cares, by a residence abroad. The provision made by the Vestry of the Church of which I am Rector, and the kind liberality of several of my friends, have enabled me to carry this design into effect, in a manner highly satisfactory and gratifying to myself. And I wish to be permitted, in this way, to express my grateful acknowledgments.I have to notice the following official acts: -On Thursday, the 17th of last October, the day following the adjournment of the last Convention, I held a confirmation in St. Pauls Church, Troy, Rensselaer county- and on the following Sunday, the 20th after Trinity, I administered the same ordinance in St. Peters Church, Albany. On Friday, October 25th, in St. Johns Chapel, in this city, the Rev. Lawson Carter, Deacon, Missionary at Ogdensburgh, St. Lawrence county, and parts adjacent, was admitted to the holy order of Priests. On the 25th Sunday after Trinity, November 24th, in Trinity Church, in this city, I admitted Seth W. Beardsley, to the order of Deacons. He is now the Minister of Christ Church, Sacketts Harbour, Jefferson county.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
