On the 10th day of October, 1U'J", I
started a subscription paper to secure
funds to pay off the debt on the Harri
son chureh. The principal of that debt
was $4-Q, and on Sept. 1, '90, the unpaid
interest amounted to $320, This was
held by the BarJ of Church Extention
Society of the Methodist Fpiscnjjal
Church. This society loaned the Harri
son sliun-h this 140, when the church
was built, besides donating f2")0, at t!e
same time. They offered to donate the
interest ,$220, if we would pay the prifr
cipal, ?4S0. The result of the paper was
that when the last day of September
enme, I had secured j0.25, by subscrip
tion, of w hich $4M2'5, were paid. Ou
that day the whole amount f HO.) must
have Iieen pmu in orcer 10 gei uie oene
(it of the donation ($220. So I borrowed
the amount (C4.7fl), to cover the defi
ciency, made the draft for the whole
amount and paid off the debt.
Since September 1st f .4 ")0 have been
paid ia, leaving $l0.2-". for which I am
personally involved, and those who have
not paid their subscriptions will do me a
favor to hand it to me or the bank.
Our church and parsonage property
are now clear of debt. I could not have
accomplished this if it had hot beeo for
ehe loyal willingness of every one to
help, and help with CASH, to the extent
of their ability. I wih to extend my

but instead, drinking, gambling, ignor
ance, RU)rstition and the opprecsion
of everyone whose belief was contrary
to their own. "Thev were pure in their
own eyes yet not cleansed from their
own Iillhiiiess lliey were coming imo
an age of growing enlightenment and
reason, but the taint of tlie dark ages was
still clingingto them and hovering around
them. 1'rinking and gambling were
fashionable at that time and the peoplu
thought nothing of the evil. Gambling
was carried on for tiie Purpose of raising
money for the church and for all charit
able purposes. From the first there were
two closses of ,)!;, the aristocratic
and the common people. In time a great
deal of the ignorance and superstition
died out and the people became more
liberal minded. Slavery was introduced
in the colonies, and the people who wish
ed so much themselves to be free began
to traffic in human beings. After about
ore hundred und fifty years of hardship
and trouble in a new country, and after
passing through Indian wars, the people
grew- tired of the tyranical rule of their
mother country, and declared themselves
a free and independent nation. It took
six years of liard fighting to con vim
England they meant what they said.
But the truth did finally penetrate their
thick skull and reached their dull brain
and she was compelled to recognize their
independence. Our country became nn
independent but cot a free nation. For
at the time she established her independ
ence, the coritroled nearly fifty thousand
African slaves. Nor did she free iheui,
butcontiuued the traffic in human beings
for many years afterward, trerting them
the same as dumb animals yet at tlie
same time making them amendible to
the law. Gambling and drinking were
still carried on in all the fashionable so
ciety, and gambling was still carried on
for the purpose of raising money for all
religious and charitable purposes.
