Dear Bro:
I place in your hands the only Church Record now in possession of the society,--The old record was sent away by some one and lost. I have tried to find its whereabouts in vain. In it was much valuable information wh. can be gotten from no other source. Since the time it was lost our pastors have left us no record of baptisms or marriages-The entries made in the new record by Bro. Weaver are very indefinite giving neither time or mode of joining.
Your Ty
L. Detwiler
