Christie reports on the success of the recent quarterly meeting at his current appointment -- Urbana. Since that meeting, 125 people have applied to be members on trial and some 50-60 have been converted. The town seems to be ripe for revival. In the midst of this revival fever, the actual members of the church are carrying on "in the midst of feuds and bickerings." The major point of strife is the choir that was formed three years ago. There are two opposing groups -- pro-choir and anti-choir. He mentions the hard work of Presiding Elder, Rev. (Zachariah) Connell. Abstract Number - 200
