Atlanta, Ga. Oct. 1899
To the members of the Church of Our Father, Greeting.
Having received a call to become the pastor of Unity Church Sioux City, Iowa, and having carefully studied the situation, and being convinced that it is my duty to accept the same, I take this opportunity to offer my resignation as pastor of the Church of Our Father, Atlanta, Georgia. My service to close with the church year, October 31, 1899. Mindful of past favors, with happy memories of helpful days both with the Church and Sunday School; conscious of friendships, true and tired; of real help in times of real need, I feel a deep regret at parting, and leave my best wish most heartfelt prayer for the welfare of the Church.
