The General Convention of the Universalists of the United States opened in the morning in Middletown, Connecticut with 51 delegates representing ten states.  The main business of the gathering was the announcement that a new constitution for the movement had been approved.  The convention closed three days later with the next meeting being set for Galesburg, Illinois in late September, 1866.  (By John Osborne)
