Entered, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1845,

BY WM. CROSBY AND H. P. NICHOLS, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of Massachusetts.

Printed at Wright's Steam Press Office, 3 Water St.


The object of this little work is

1. To give Unitarians a better knowledge of their own denomination.

2. To give others some knowledge of the nature, extent, and present condition of Unitarian Christianity in this country.

3. To preserve some important statistical information for future use, which would otherwise be lost.

The tables of statistics are necessarily imperfect, and can only be regarded as a foundation for more perfect statements hereafter, should it be deemed worth the while to continue the work. As it is, it is commended to the kind patronage of the denomination for whose benefit this labor has been incurred.

P. S. It will be seen that accounts of some associations are introduced in which other denominations besides the Unitarians are interested with them.
