To Spring Grove Monthly Meeting,
Dear Friends: In making our annual report we feel mindful of the great work entrusted to our care and are very thankful for what has been done yet for the lack of means we have come short of accomplishing as much as we desired.
Some of our numbers assisted in a union prayer meeting at Highland, also prayer meetings at Lane and Spring Grove part of the time. L. E. Updegraff has held six meetings and assisted in a revival at Green Valley. We have held a union Sabbath School at Fairview for months. The mothers meeting at Lane is still kept up. We have assisted Eusebia Couch in sessions last summer and Anna Z. Strange in the eleventh month sessions and in first month sessions. Two of our number assisted in sessions at Hunt's School House in Linn County. A union Sabbath School at Highland was kept up part of the year. Families were visited.
The amount of money raised Moses Stanley and wife 90 cts to W. R. Harris who visited this meeting in the 7th month last, B. P. Hiatt $1.00 in the 4th month.
Signed on behalf of the committee,
Lydia Arnold, Clerk
