CD: In Loving Remembrance of the Founders of the Parish of Saint James Church in Woodstock Vermont and of Those by Whose Devotion Their Work was Continued This Memorial is Set Forth, 1827-1907 - . "In writing the history of St. James it is interesting to note that Vermont is peculiar in being the only one of the original communities which, as a state, was independent of both Great Britain and the United States, with towns chartered by a Churchman, with a reservation in each town so chartered for 'a Glebe for the Church of England as by law established,' and 'for the incorporated Society for the Propagation of the Gospel.' In that the Propagation lands remained in the possession of that Society, it is the only state a large part of whose territory has from the beginning been owned by an organization of the Anglican Church, and from which the wing of that Church has never been lifted." The chapters cover the topics: Early Charter; The Episcopate; Religious Life of Woodstock; Organization of the Parish; The First Building; Visitations of the Bishop; Diocesan Growth; Ladies Charitable Society; Later Years; and The Last Services. Appendices cover: a Letter from Dr. Jos. A. Gallup to Rev. Joel Clap; the Articles of Association, By-Laws, Signers of same and Consent of the Standing Committee; Lists of Officers; Statistics; and Resolutions adopted at the last service in the old church.
