is advanced. Another Convention is to be held for the South, at
Richmond, Va., July 4-6, in the present year, and another still is
earnestly invited on the Pacific slope. Besides all these, a Southern
Convention, born of the National Convention at Brooklyn, and mod-
eled after it, a Convention nnmerously attended and influential, has
been held during the present year in Alabama. These are all signs
of a living and advancing interest in education which can not perish
without enduring fruits.

The Union Seminary for the Northwest.

This is the Baptist Union Theological Seminar}^ for the Northwest, designed
equally for the benefit of every part of this great field, each State having equal
privileges and advantages. Its name does not inipl}' a union of different denom-
inations, but a union of Baptists in several surrounding States in founding and
conducting it. The Charter of the Baptist Theological Union provides that
" No person shall be a trustee who is not a member of a regular Baptist church."

One Central Theological Seminary will attract a higher order of ability in its
chairs of instruction, and a much larger number of students than any merely
local Institution. Teachers and students will be stimulated to higher attainments
by the presence and friction of numerous minds, while superior buildings, library,
ftnd other appliances can be afforded them. Only by such united effort can we be
prepared to honor the ministerial drafts which the regions still further West will
present to us iu the hastening future.



This is the only Baptist Institution between the Allegliany Mountains an!i
the Pacific Ocean, which is exclusivtly devoted to the education of ministers of
tlie gospel.

Its Location.

It is located at Chicago, in the centre of the Northwest, surrounded by a
population of twelve millions of people — » a field increasing in population more
rapidly than any other part of the world, and in which this Seminary has the
grandest of opportunities for doing good to the present and to future generations.

When Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa and
Minnesota, are settled as densely as Massachusetts now is, they will contain
seventy-one millions of people, or more than the entire population of Great
Britain and France. And when the Mississippi valley, reacliing from tlie Alle-
gliany to the Rocky Mountains, is settled as densely as the most of Europe is, it
will contain more than three hundred millions.

What Has Been Done.

The Seminary has been in full operation since Oct. 2, 1867. It is located near
the University of Chicago, but is an entirely separate Institution, and under a
separate cliarter.

The Seminary Building is 214 feet in length, and was finished Julv 1st, 1869,
costing $60,000. The building, ground and furniture are valued at $90,000.

In the first four years it has had over eighty students, twenty-four of whom
were ordained ministers when they entered the Seminary. About five hundred
persons have been converted and baptized in connection with the labors of the
students while they were prosecuting their studies.

Besides raising the means to pay for the building, ground, furniture, and the
current expenses thus far, and also providing for a large numtier of beneficiaries,
good progress has been made towards the endowment of the Seminary, a work
which should be speedily completed.

The Endowment Fund.

Tuition in the Seminary is free. To support the teachers we must have an
Endovmient Fund, to be kept permanently, and the interest of it used for this
purpose. This Fund we are now raising, chiefly by notes payable at any time
within five years, the interest to be paid annually. Can you not aid in the
Endowment Fund by giving your note, payable in one, two, three or five years?

Your contribution to the Endowment Fund will remain and be doing good to
the rising ministry long after you have passed away. Would you not like to place
part of your possessions where they will confer blessings upon your fellow men
for ages to come? It is an object worthy of special prayer and effort.

Beneficiary Fund.

The Theological Union is aiding many of the students to pay their board and
other expenses while in the Seminary. They could not continue their studies
without this aid. For this purpose we need immediate contributions.

Life Membership.

A donation of Thirty Dollars will constitute you a Life Member of the Theo-
logical Union, which founds and conducts this Tlieological Seminary. Can you
not make yourself and all your family Life Members, by paying it down or giving
your note ?

Direction.

Any contribution for the Theological Seminary may be sent by mail or by
express, directed to me at the Baptist Union Theological Seminarj', Chicago, 111.

Secretary of the Baptist Tlieological Union.
