1. The objects of the Union shall be to encourage,
unite, and increase Sabbath schools in the city of
Glasdow and neighbourhood, and to improve the
methods of conducting them, by circulating infor-
mation, and giving currency to useful suggestions.
2. The Union shall consist of the members of such
Sabbath school societies as annually furnish a report
to the secretaries, and otherwise co-operate for the
above objects, which hold the doctrine of the divine
inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, the deity and
atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the person-
ality and influence of the Holy Spirit
3. The committee, while they communicate with
the various district unions of the city, on the best
means of advancing the above objects, shall not
interfere with the regulations or management of
any of them.
4. The directors shall give their attention chiefly
to measures of a general character affecting Sabbath
schools ; they shall encourage the establishment of
Local Unions where necessary, and shall assist these
in devising and prosecuting their plans.

by a board of directors. This board shall consist of
a president, two vice-presidents, a treasurer, two or

secretaries, for the time being, of the district unions,
and representatives from the district unions, in the
proportion of one for every two hundred, or part of
that number, of their teachers. Seven shall consti-
tute a quorum.
6. The board of directors shall meet for business
as often as may be necessary; and the annual

mittees shall be opened and closed with prayer.
