Atlanta, Ga. Jan 22, 1905

A called meeting of the church was held today immediately after the morning service. The President Mr. Holdt getting, N.V, Perry a member of the Board was called to chair.

The object of the meeting was stated to be that of considering a letter received from the president of the National Y.P.C.U. (See Archivist Note below)

This letter state that it seemed to be the unanimous opinion of all concerning that Bro. Harris was not the man for the pastor of the Atlanta church, etc. and that though if the Atlanta church would agree to stand by Bro. Harris as long as he was in Atlanta the National Mission would endeavor to secure him a call to some church in the month as early as possible by February 1, 1905 if in their power.

Thereupon after some discussion it was agreed that the church endorse said letter and carry out its provisions and the Secretary was instructed to inform Mr. Ames the president accordingly.

The meeting then adjourned.
