This is to represent to you that the members and friends of the McAdoo Memorial congregation at birth place of the denomination have secured a charter and are raising money for a school at that place and in that matter they ask your good will and kindly offices.

We further represent that in locating buildings for that purpose they may or may not need to touch upon the lands or make some use at least temporarily of the property of that congregation, and they ask your permission to do that only in a right way.

We further represent to you that the congregation at that place are not especially desirous to have a marble memorial shaft which has been proposed for that place erected, but would prefer this proposed school to stand instead of that, and if it might be so, that the money which it was been intended to use for the shaft be turned to the use of the school.

Motion by Rev. W. H. McLeskey that the report and resolution be referred to a special committee. Carried.

We, the Special Committee which you appoointed to consider the memorial presented to you by the corporation now proposing to establish a school at the birth place, would recommend that this Presbytery grant their request in extending to them our good will and wishes, and trust that they may be abundantly successful; and as to the use of a part of our grounds there that this matter be left to the Trustees of the property.
