•Dec. 26, 1923. No general appeal for signatures to this Affirmation has been made. It was at first intended to publish it with one hundred signatures, and this was announced on Nov. 20, 1923. In response to a limited amount of personal approach, more than this number of names were offered. The committee in charge then decided that only one hundred and fifty names should be attached. More than this number have been offered, and a certain selection
has been made from these for this publication, in order to show that the Affirmation expresses the opinions of ministers from all parts of the church. It is intended to publish in the near future other signatures that have come in or may come in. Correspondence regarding the Affirmation may be addressed to the Conference Committee, 10 Nelson St., Auburn, N. Y.
