Dearest Grace: 

I arrived here safely this morning. I suppose you have been expecting to hear from me for several days. 

I received your last letter and contents. I went to Motley's Friday morning. It is about thirty miles from here. We drove about four miles in the country to the church where the conference was held. I preached a short sermon before calling the conference to order. After the sermon lunch was served in country fashion. The conference passed off very pleasantly. I found the work here opening very favorably. I returned to the parsonage at Motley's where I spent the night. Our pastor at this charge is named J.H. Lewis. His wife is very pleasant. I spent a very comfortable night. On Saturday morning I left on the 8 a.m. train for Lynch's Circuit 8 miles
