Nov 12, 1905

A meeting of the congregation was held in the church at 11 o’clock to discuss ways and means to meet the church debt. $118.60 was soon subscribed, $80.10 was paid in cash. A motion to draft resolutions of thanks to Rev. Paul Tyner for his service to the church was carried. Secy was asked to send a statement of amount due on pledges to each member requesting a settlement in thirty days. It was also voted to pay Secy 1% on all pledges collected.

Treas. was authorized to pay $30.00 on Rev. E.J. Harris’s account and $20.00 to Rev. Paul Tyner balance due on salary. Printing bills of $5.00 were ordered paid.

Mr. J.C. Bond read a letter from Rev. Mr. Ellenwood in which he reconsidered the call to this church. He will be with us on the 1st Sunday in Dec.

As there was no further business, the meeting adjourned.


Mrs. F.W. Wey
