-- Sunday, Nov. 16th 1879
[Abraham H. Cannon Journal] I slept very well; took breakfast with Mr. Hunt, after which we went with Bro. Lomax to Bro. Dewey's home, where we took dinner. Went to meeting at the house of Bro. Lomax, and I with other's bore my testimony to the Gospel truths: took tea with the Dewey family, returning to meeting in the evening at half past six; I spoke for a few minutes, and Bro. Dunbar occupied the remainder of the evening. We went with Bro. Lomax, to the house of Mr. Oliver, who is not in the Church, but he and his wife will be baptized as soon as convenient, and there we took supper. We called on Sister Vance and went from there to Mr. Hunt's, and to bed. The Saints here are feeling very well. (1)
