McMasters (Local Preacher in Mt. Pleasant) attended a local meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers) in order to hear one of the Society's greatest preachers -- Nathan Hunt. McMasters reports that Hunt gave "good advice" but nothing very great. The following day, Hunt came to his father's home for a "stillness and silence" meeting, an attempt to convert McMasters which did not work. Mt. Pleasant was the hub of the Society west of the Alleghenies at this time. Abstract Number - 4
