Summary:
The general convention of Episcopal ministers gathered at Philadelphia have requested the Bishops of England to consecrate an American bishop. As this will doubtless be referred to the King of England and his ministry, assure them that this request is perfectly consonant with the desires of Congress, as the general convention have indicated no desire to impose their religious beliefs upon others.
