The committee on Presbyterial Lines offered their report which was adopted:

Your committee on Presbyterial Lines would report that we have a memorial from Greer County Presbytery asking for an increase of territory. In accordance with said memorial we recommend that her territory be increased as follows:

Beginning on Red River at the mount of North Fork, thence southeast with meanderings of Red River to southwest corner of Chickasaw Nation, thence north on west boundary of Chickasaw Nation to South Canadian river, thence northwest with meanderings of South Canadian to the line of Texas, 100th meridian, thence south to northwest corner of Greer County.

We also recommend that the word "County" be dropped from the name of Greer County Presbytery.
