AS PASTOR OF THE PLEASANT
GREEN BAPTIST CHURCH. WILL
DEDICATE NEW FOUNDATION IN
A FEW WEEKS, AND LATER TO
COMPLETE NEW CHURCH WORTH
The Pleasant Green Baptist Church
of this city is an organization about
.'!0 years old. The first pastor of
this church was Kev. John Morgan,
of Kentucy. lie was nn nble defend
er of the Gospel and of strong moral
character. He succeeded in buying
the proporyt In rear of Indeneniletiee
and Tracy avenues, and building the
frame house where the Church Is at
presc.it. After Kev. Motrin's death
the next preacher who became Lie
pastor of the Church was Rev. Al
ford, of Kansas.
After a stay of about two years
Kev. All'ord was succeeded by Kev.
E. M. Wilson, of Kentucky, who was
the .most intellectual pastor the
church has ever had. He was an
able defender of tin.' church and a
pulpit orator. These two preachers.
Rev. Alford and Kev. Wilson, were
both overcome by the same weakness.
Rev. G. W. Burdett was the next
pastor who resigned of his own ac

Booker,- of Memphis. Tenn.. who was
the pastor of Salem Baptist church.
the second largest Baptist church in
Memphis. He desired to change his
field of labor, so he resigned to come
to Kansas City.
Kev. Booker was born In Virginia
in IStlli, and in 18(ift his father took
him to Mississippi, where he received
a common school education (In
becoming a young man .2.1 years
old he was converted In
June, 188(1, nt Memphis. Two
years later he was licensed to ureacb.
and on Sept. l.'Uh. 18!ll. he was or
dained, after which he pustored suc
cessfully for 5 years the Salem Bap
tist Church in Memphis. Kev. Book-1

ment of Howe Institute for about 9
He built the Mount Zlon Baptist
Church during his time in Memphis.
As a financitT and church builder
his ability can not lie doubted. When
he came to take charge of the Pleas-
ant Green Church one year ago, It
was In a critical condition. During
this one year he has raised nearly
$:!.WH and paid all Indebtedness of
the church, and built the foundation
for the new church on the east side
of Tracy avenue, near Independence
avenue. The Pleasant Green Church
is in splendid condition now. It owns
two good pieces f property, nml val
ues all of its holdings at $10,0un.
Rev. Booker will build a handsome
Auditorium on the new foundation In
the next five years, worth from $10.
ooii to $1 .l.ooti. thus making the new
church worth about $25,0(mi.
The people of this citv who admire
a clean, Christian gentleman, a man
of principle and Integrity, should
give Kev. Booker their support and
help him to do a great, work for God
and humanity. He Is one man who
will not condole immoral crime, or
shield dirty men who are preaching
the gospel. He Is deserving of the
aid and confidence of the people.

of gratitude which it will be difficult
for us to repay.
It seems to me that It would he
very fitting If we should begin now
to make preparations to celebrate this
anniversary in a befitting manner.
Such a celebration should be ar
ranged for in schools, churches, by
literary organizations and various' oili

Amesbiiry, Mass., his old home, advis
ing of plans now being perfected for
the celebration of this great event iu
I trust that our people everywhere
will let the world know through a
proper celebration of the event how
