Upon motion a warrant for $17.75 was ordered drawn in Dr. McGlauflin’s favor for this amount.

Also a warrant was ordered drawn to pay bill owning by LaHatte Printing Co for $5.75.  Also a warrant for $15.00 was ordered drawn in favor of Colcord Lumber Co to be placed on our account.

A letter from Rabbi Brown of Columbus, Ga. relative to his giving a lecture in the church on “The Talmud” in the future addressed to Dr. McGlauflin was brought to the attention of the Board.  After some discussion the Secretary was instructed to answer said letter that it would not be practicable to have said lecture at present.

A letter from L.A. Awes (Archivist Note: Unsure of Spelling of last name) Central President asking the probable donation that the Atlanta parish would expect the coming year.

It seemed to be the sense of the Board that we should expect, at least, $900 the coming year and Dr. McGlauflin was instructed to answer said letter accordingly.

The matter of purchasing an additional 25 feet on E. Harris St adjoining our church lot was bought up and upon motion a committee consisting of H.W. McGlauflin and J.C. Bond was appointed for the purpose of seeing what could be done in this matter.

Upon motion duly seconded, the board meeting adjourned.
