said that as this was the first meeting
of the kind in the history of the A. M.
E. Church, he desired that every one
present kneel while Bishop Tyree
would sk the divine blessings of God
upon the meeting. All present seemed
to be greatly affected by the fervent
prayer by Bishop Tyree, and a wave
of brotherly love could be seen in the
countenance, and a harmonious meet

Dr. Gregg made a few remarks out
