Dear folks at home,--Went
to Presbytery last week. Left
on the morning train Tuesday, but instead of doing
straight to Denton as I thought I would at first
I decided to go by Sheeman to see about the booming
of the Glee glub, Pound that it would be impossible
for the slee Club boys to all come on the date
announoed,and so we postponed the concert till the
following Tuesday, whih is tomorrow. So we are expecting
thum over tomorrow evening,and think Bessie
Graoe will get to oome with the. . The churoh here
are so insistent that she oome that they propose to
a.p afer wena Jake and B. G. Hve both made a fine
While 'I was in A. C. and Sherman I saw
a fine ball gaae between A. C.and S. M.U. resulting Ain
a moore of 6 to a.in our favor. The game the
ing day was also in our favor: A.C. 4 and SMU *.
The faot that I stayed over for the
game made me late to Presbyter y. When excuse for
tardiness was called for I arose and said 'I had no
excuse. Sam Joekel who was sitting by my side got
_.,, up and made a supposed excuse for me that 'I was
afraid of being elected moderator if 'I came on time.
Dr.Wharton,knvowin4 that T stayed over in Sherman for
the purpose of seeing the game,addressed the chair
and moved that I be excused if I would tell ablut
the game, which I did briefl .,emphasising the score.
But between sessions I was the object of a lot of
funmaking about going by Sherman to see "my sister".
Most of them had seen sisters" before.
Prep was there in his Ford, bad brought
his wife and son to Whitesboro to stay with her folks
while he and a man from. his church went down to
Denton for Prssb. tery. I returned with him, stayed all
night at the Omohundros,Besses folks, and they brought
me.home Friday morning. It was a great treat to get
to be with Brqp and Bess again 6a well ae to see the
Omohundros, which is always a pleasure.
Vesterda was a fine church day. It
was one of-those days when you feellike sayin at
the olose,"Well,this is the end of a perfect day".
And that's just what Mr.Johnson always says on suoh
days and he has been saying it nearly every Sunday.
Pretty weather good crowds at both oity and country
ohuiohes,and a couple bf cars loaded with people
went from town to Wolf Ridge for the afternoon service
Plans are being made for a childrens day and Mothers,
Day program% at Wolf Ridge the 2nd Sunday in May.
Lots of love to everybody,
Here’s what’s next.
