Langard's letter first concerns the separate organization of the Church South for which the writer encloses some additional information. He then writes about the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church and its several resolutions, one of which states that baptism of the Church of Rome is not a valid or Christian baptism, and all converts from that community must be re-baptized.
