"Harper's Mission, Brother Henry H. Johnson, pastor. This mission is without a church house proper for service, but not without an earnest young man as pastor, a few members and many friends who are ready to help the pastor and members to build church houses, and the pastor tells me he is determined to build soon.
We are hard at work on the district, and the good Lord is helping us much; as a district, we are determined not to be excelled in labor, love, and long-suffering and a good report in every particular."
