Owing to the small attendance and the general conditions which prevail in the Presbytery, the sessions of this Presbytery continued through only one and one-half days. Presbytery ad journed to meet in the First church, San Antonio, on September 30th at 2:30 P. M. The Presbytery met at the appoint ed time and place with eight minis ters and one ruling elder present. Calls for the pastoral services of Rev. E. B. Paisley from McAllen and Rev. R. P. Cribble from Mercedes were found in order and placed in their hands. They having accepted the calls, Presbytery appointed com missions to conduct the installations at such time as may be satisfactory to all parties.
