There is nothing special to remark.  External prosperity attends us.

The attendance upon the preached word is generally good. The effort has been made to liquidate our Church debt, which had resulted largely in its diminution. Our prayer & hope is that God will graciously bless & revive his work.

                                              Respectfully submitted
                                                      
S. T. Searle, Pres. Of Consistory.

We are permitted to report that harmony & peace prevail in the congregation; that the services of the Sanctuary are generally well attended, & a good degree of attention paid to the preached word. A weekly meeting for prayer is held, & Sabbath School & Catechetical Instruction are imparted. We have reason more fervently to pray for the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

                                                          S. T. Searle,
                                                                  
By order of Consistory.
