ft. was a present to the church by
Bro. S. Denney, who has also given
us much help in the way of money
and work, and by the help of some
outsiders we have been enabled to
build a house 28x44 ft. in size with
an 18 ft. ceiling, but will not be
able to complete it for some time
as we have about run out of money.
We have regular services every
Sunday, where we meet around the
Lord’s table, and Sunday school
every Sunday morning with an
average attendance of about 25.
We are indebted to Bros. Espy,
Hodges, Sharpe and WaUon for

we express our thank». Hoping to
make a report equally if not better

Western Washington at the next
convention of 1884, we remain
