1887
Arlington.-- Our meeting at this place embraced the first Sabbath in November, lasted ten days, and resulted in forty-six professions and thirteen accessions to this congregation.

Ministers in attendance: J. C. Talley, J. J. Bramblet, and the writer. The whole house was converted into an altar, and sinners truly cried, What shall we do to be saved? The Lord was truly with us in convicting and converting power. On Sunday evening between 3 o'clock and 7 there were nineteen professions.

Memorial Service
Presbytery by standing vote adopted the following: Your committee on Memorials beg to say: It is with sorrow we bring sad news. God in his wisdom has seen proper to call from labor to reward, Brothers J. L. Stockard and J. J. Bramlett; both great sufferers, but once active workers. Many doubtless will rise up to call them blessed in the last day. May God in his great love comfort their bereaved families, while we as a Presbytery tender them our sympathies and prayers, and will be ready to do anything we can for them.
W. C. CARTER,
J. A. ALLISON,
G. W. BUQUO
