Atlanta, Ga., Sept 11, 1895
Mr. Geo. H. Crafts
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Church of Our Father

Dear Sir,

I tender you may resignation as Librarian of your Library to take effect at as early a date as possible.

With sincere regret I take this step as the work in the little room at our church had become very dear to me.  The growth of your library, however, has increased the duties then so much that I would find it difficult in the extreme to cope with them alone, without the wise counsel and generous assistance of one who was in reality your librarian (Archivist Note: Not sure to whom this reference is regarding “your librarian.”  Theodore Schumann was appointed head of the library committee on Nov 6, 1894, but he died Jan 1895.  Julius R. Watts was added to the Library Committee Nov 19, 1895. Rev. Cole was added to the Library Committee on Feb 18, 1895.  Rev. Cole resigned in July 1895.)

Please notify me at our earliest convenince of the name of my successor and I shall at once turn over to him all papers as well as other material connected with this work. I shall always be glad to give any information on other assistance that may be desired.

Sincerely Yours,


Emilia S. Behre

The chair appointed Mr. Harding upon the Library Committee vice Wm. R. Cole resignation.

Moved and voted to procure a carpet and furniture for the Exhibit at Exposition. (Archivist Note: A Cotton Exposition is scheduled in Atlanta from Sep – Dec  1895)

The Board then adjourned.


H.M. Currier, Clerk
