Flora Vista, N. M., July 15. -Will
you allow me to explain the Flora
Vista ehureh lot affair, as I understand
some of your people have been de
ceived. The facts are these: Some
years ago I deeded an acre to the trus
tees of the M E. Church South at Flo
ra Vista far a church site, with a ver
bal understanding that if ihey did not
ue it for a church site it was to bo
deeded back to me. 8o it ran on for a
tew j ears and they decided to move
the church site on MoCoy's land, he
giving n acre of land. So they movtd
the foundation and hauled the br.ck
from Farmington on the lot, yiven by
Mr. McCoy and built, tho foundation,
so then I told Mr. Howard who was
then presiding elder and prvacher in
Charge that according to .'ireement
the lot was to ba deeded back to me.
So in my house in tno presence of
Levi Day, and Mrs. llyde.i and my
self, Howard told Mr. D.iy and myseif,
as we were two of the trus.ecs, to
deed the lot tack to me, and with that 1
authority I made out the dtd and all
ot r.s trustees signed it. but previous
to this the truntc-s gave a rbfunding
bond th the church extension board,
which Mr. Howard said lie would
have transferred to the McCoy lot, but
never oid so, and the next year the
Kev. Wood was put on the work and
when he went away he said lie would
have it transferred to tho McCoy lot,
but he failed to do so. So last spring
without my knowledge or consent
they decided to move back on a.y lot
iu.d I notillod them that 1 would not
give the lot back. So thy ignored my
notice and. hauled the brick back to
my lot and laid them U Now, these
ire faots and I can prove 'nem; now,
if this is the w:v, foi Christian peopla
to do, I Will let the people decide
Now, Mr. Howard denies ever giv
ing the author" bo deed the lot back,
an J now aftr using the Kev. Mr. Day
for years to fill his appointments and:
its class Ifeadt-r and Su. day school su
perintendent, he now Mr Day i
erazy , as Mr. Day -ays bo did give au
thority to deed the lot bacic. 1 oent
Mr. H ward word to come and see me,
but'he tailed to come. Howard will
hdl .yon that Christ said, "reason one
with another." Has he done so? I
am willing for the people to decide
who is light in this matter aid the
court will decide ho ow us the lot.
