Mt. Pleasant Female Relief Society September 1, 1878

Meeting held Sept. 1, 1878.
Opened with singing.
Prayer by Sister Peel
Singing in Danish.
Sister Peel opened the meeting as Sister Morrison was called away.
to a Dead Person.
Donations were read and disbursements from the last month; also the donation for our missionaries, Brother Franzen and Brother Jensen which amounted to $30.00.

Sister Peel then bore her Testimony, felt thankful for our Heavenly Father, that He had brought the Everlasting Gospel to her native country and had helped her so she could embrace.
She said that she heard a letter read from a Missionary, it said that parents would give their children away and would be glad if anyone would take them; felt glad to come to meeting.  She thanked the Sisters in the name of the Missionaries for the money that was gathered so willingly from the Sisters and said that she went down to Brother Jensen, and could see how glad he was for it.  And before he left, he came to see Sister Peel  and told her again to remember his thanks to the Sisters and wished them to remember them and sustain them with their faith and prayers.  She urged the Sisters to come to Meeting and to   one their duty.
She said that she likes to come up to her duty all the time. If she was well or sick, if she only knew that nothing was on her mind that she has to be sorry for.

Sister Simpson rose and was glad for the opportunity
to meet with the Sisters. She felt that we were a blessed people to live in this peaceful valley and these mountains, and hoped we all would realize this blessing and as the Lord blesses us with plenty, we should try to do the best we can for the building up of His kingdom and always be on our guard; not to do any wrong or hurt anyone's feelings.

Most all of the Sisters present bore their testimonies in a faithful manner.

Meeting was closed with singing and prayer by Sister Simpson.

MFC Morrison, Pres.
Louise Hasler, Sec.
