"offering". We, the "Aid" are making a quilt, each square will hold nine names the one in each
of the centers is .25 ch. a name those on the outside 10 c. a name. We thought you would like
your name on the quilt of Perry, Beloved Perry!

Garr has a good sermon. I'm afraid he is too slow for sister Davenport slower than the old
preacher. Bro. T. is entertaining. He didn't offer to do it. They are hoping to get him to here.
But I don't really think he wants to. He is over a town lecturing.

hopes not. You ought to hear him laugh when I read it to him and he me send that to Bro.
Morgan.
