We were grieved indeed to hear of the death of Mr. Robert Jones last Saturday morning.  When the news spread far and wide that he was dead we thought, “Oh how can it be true?”  But, how thankful we are, as he had to go, to know he is at peace in heaven with his God and his father, who had gone on just a short time ahead.  It was here that he did his first work for God in starting out as a minister of the gospel, at the Smith school house, and the people were very deeply moved and interested in the earnestness of his pleadings for them to come and accept Christ as their Savior. There were six conversions and a great many made to think of their sinful conditions.  That meeting will live in the minds of our people for many years to come.  We feel the loss of a very dear friend in giving him up.

There will be a memorial service to the late Alfred Carter Williams at the chapel when the tablet is put in to his memory.  Sometime soon there will also be a memorial service to Robert Jones.
