Mr. Cole stated he could not accept the proposition under the guarantee of $37.00 per month, but would accept if the Board would make the guarantee $55.00 per month. (See paper filed under date of Jan 8, 1894).
Mr. Dixon presented a resolution as follows which was adopted.
Resolved: That while it is the sincere desire of this Board as well as the will of the congregation to secure Rev. Mr. Cole as our permanent pastor, it is the judgment of the Board that we cannot pledge the church under existing circumstances to a letter of offer (other) than the one originally made and that Mr. Cole be requested to take said offer under further advisement.
On motion it was voted to request the chairman to present the above motion with an explanation of the situation.
No further business appearing, the Board adjourned.
