“Every Friday for Everybody”
Blairsville - The City of
From Brother Davidson
There are at least two things that a preacher really ought not to do. One is to collect his own salary, another is to be the spokesman in matters concerning the upkeep of the house in which he lives, for it often seems that he only has personal and selfish motives in matters of this kind. But as it seems that no one else will take the lead in the matter of repairing the parsonage, it falls my lot to do so. Therefore I am asking that the trustees together with the committee of ladies meet at the parsonage on Saturday afternoon, March 17th at to investigate the needs of the parsonage.
The trustees of the parsonage are as
follows: B. B. Fite, B. H. Stone, C. Y.
Rogers, J. W. Jones, J. M. Allison, Ed Bryant, T. N. Duncan, Reid Burnett, C.
A. Duvall, Love Hamby, and J. B. Legg.
The committee of ladies are as follows: Mrs. Eula Colwell, Mrs. J. W. Jones, Mrs. J.
D. Miller, Mrs. Ada Rogers, Mrs. W. A. Rogers, Mrs. T. N. Duncan, Mrs. U. S.
Cobb, Miss Grapelle
I want to urge that each of the above named parties be present. I want to reemphasize a former statement that since all the churches get the benifit of the pastor’s services, that each church is responsible for the upkeep of the parsonage. It has been more than a month since the First Quarterly Conference and yet no stops have been taken toward the needed repairs of the parsonage and so if the matter is delayed much longer the year will slip away and nothing be done. I believe that a preacher’s service ought to be appreciated enough to furnish bread and meat and a comfortable place in which to live.

Since it has been reported that I once made a false affidavit (swore a lie) before N. C. Forrester and since some of my dear friends (?) are very anxious to find said affidavit, I will pay the first person producing such affidavit One Hundred Dollars ($100.) This is to make the game more interesting.

(This is the reason that this particular newspaper was found in an old trunk that once belonged to Elbie Dills Clement. She was the wife of William Narvie Clement. I was unable to find out many details about why Narvie Clement offered such a tremendous reward for such affidavit, but I do know that it was in relation to property boundaries at Mt. Pleasant 1 Church. The N. C. Forrester listed in this section was the father-in-law to Narvie’s sister, Vesta Clement Forrester. I can only conclude that Narvie was eminently sure that no such document existed due to the amount of the reward…$100.00 in 1928 was a tremendous amount of money at that time. He was confident enough to post this amount, therefore asserting his innocence in this situation.)
