“Alfred Osborne as chairman of the Joint Committee in charge of effecting the union of New England Friends, read a letter from the Executive Committee of the Five Years Meeting to the reunited and con-solidated Yearly Meeting inviting it to join the Five Years Meeting, with the understanding that in so doing the meeting’s membership would be in full effect immediately. The Joint Committee recommended accep¬tance of the invitation and after consideration, the Meeting approved and instructed the Nominating Committee to suggest names of Friends to serve as delegates to the approaching session of the Five Years Meeting [10th month 17-23, 1945 in Richmond, Indiana]. . . .”
