Dear Folks at Home,--.
Yesterday was baccalaureate Sunday for the
High School. Sermon was reached by Rv. R. G. Mood, the
Presiding Elder of this distriotat the First Presbyter
ilan church. However our church with several others
.had.iits regular services for the entire day,knowing
there would be no room for the orowd at the other
We had good average attendance at all-the
services of the day-both in tow and in the country.
With -y country work I am on the go from 7 a.m. to
14 hours. Of course my other days are not
uite so strenuous but they are just as full and often
fller than Sunday, My nights are all taken up with
engagements except Saturday whieh 'I guard darifully.
Thursday is the only night 'I don't ha'e tsome regular
weekly engagement and even that 'night rarely ever
oes by without something doing.
This week I am taking a rest and am going to
Milford to oommenoement exercises. Will be gone till
Wednesday night or Thursday and will possibly come
back by way of Sherman, tho t am not sure of that.
Mary Prances writes that her father and mother are to
%be there sc 311l get to see them today.
Next Sunday is Children's Day in our ohuroh
and the teachers are busy training the kiddies in
their songs and readings. It being Fifth Sunday the
young people's Sooiety,aooording to ousto, will have
share of the night services, and will render a program
on "Missions in Africa". I think they are getting up
a real interesting affair. Am sorry I shall not be
here to enjoy it, for I shall be away for the night.
Am going to Marietta Okla,,just acros the line a short
distance from here,to preach for the church there
next Sunday night. They ihave been calling for me
to visit them for quite a while and they are anxious
to get a preacher like so man other churches are right
now. They think I can help them to get someone, but
when there are no preachers to be had don't see much
chance to help them out.
Our S.S.kad O.E. had a fine ricnic last Thurbda
night out west of town. We had ideal weather and the
moon was shining the brightest I ever saw. Part of our
ipicnio was by daylight and part by moonlight,having
_our supper in between. We played all sorts of gases
and had the best musio with stringed instruments I have
ever heard in my life. A man was with us who could play
any of them,,and espeoiall his steel Ha*iiian guitar.
And he oould sing too.
Will have to close and get ready to go.
Here’s what’s next.
