This book consists of dates May 5, 1850 through August 1872, and as far as I can tell is actually the first book written that we have found. It is small, being 6 1/8" x 8" x 1/2" thick, and is very faded, but all is easily readalb eexcept for pages 3 and 4 which were loose and very worn on the edtes. Inside the front cover of this book reads: Christian Church Book. There are scattered blank pages throughout the book.
