A “Meeting for Sufferings” was established by Philadelphia Yearly Meeting in 1756. This representative body was specifically charged with acting for the Society of Friends in the region during the time when the Yearly Meeting was not in session. Duties included oversight of Quaker publications, recording annual accounts of sufferings (primarily as a result of the Peace Testimony) and assistance to any affected individuals, collecting memorials concerning deceased Friends, and correspondence with the Meeting for Sufferings in London.
