John recently had a pleasant trip to Ohio and found all their friends in good health. He brought Samuel back with him to Augusta and put him in school. John thinks Samuel? should take up a trade in the fall. Their Missionary Society left $15 to James for the use of his Mission (to the Wyandots). John had been informed that Bishop McKendree was on his way to visit James. Augusta College is doing as well as can be expected, though it is feared that the Church will fail to raise any funds for the success of the college and the Presbyterians had already preached of the failure. James Armstrong has said he will finish it if he has to do it himself. The subject of reform is now being agitated in the State. Abstract Number - 952
