name to suit the body and, also
the united body would elect its
own officers from the greatest to
the smallest, aid the property of
both churches be made over to
the united booy in whatever name
that the body may be named.
And wc further agreed to build
a new church between the bridge
and the railroad.
This resolution passed after
which a committee on nomination
of officers was appointed. A
motion prevailed to adjourn to
meet again Saturday night at
which meeting to name the church
and elect officers. Sang a hymn
and a hearty hand shake.

body two names were presented
