James Relly, who published his Union in 1760, founded the sect of Universalists in Great Britain; and John Murray, in America, about 1770. The sect barely exists in Great Britain, but flourishes in the United States.

Joseph Stevens Buckminster (1784-1812), whose ordination sermon (1805) he nevertheless preached, not without a note of fatherly foreboding. The Buckminsters were of the Edwards stock. The staunch and earnest father was a contemporary of Dwight, Barlow, and Trumbull at Yale; the scholarly, eloquent, and saintly son was an immediate predecessor of Andrews Norton, and a contemporary of W.
