Summary: A report of the organization's activities during the year of 1920. Includes discourses by the president of the conference and a summary of the received donations, income, and expenses during that year.
Historical Notes: The Conference of Saint Vincent de Paul was a charitable society that provided help to those in need. It was founded in Paris in 1833, and from there, it spread its mission throughout the world. A branch of the Conference was established in Bogotá in 1857, another in Medellín in 1882. This pamphlet evinces the activities of yet another branch of this institution in Popayán.
