About

In 1828, a joint stock company of “benevolent brethren” started the weekly Vermont Telegraph in Brandon to promote the goals of the Vermont Baptist Convention. From 1828 to 1835, the Telegraph was a denominational organ, providing reprints of sermons, essays on religious topics, and reports on revivals, meetings, and missionary activities. Four Baptist ministers served as editors during this period: Ira M. Allen, Nathan Brown, Warham Walker and Willard Kimball. In 1832, the Telegraph printed a notable series of articles by Baptist William Miller in which he laid out the foundation for his theory of a Second Advent. The paper, particularly under Brown and Walker, included editorials and articles calling for the abolition of slavery, reflecting the church’s principle of liberty for all.
