          Report of Organizer and Lecturer.

To the Bishop and Members of the W. M. M. Society of the Ohio Con-
        ference in Session, Greeting:--
    You cannot imagine my disappointment, after having labored
arduously the entire year, to be deprived of the pleasure of meet-
ing with you face to face, shaking hands as friend with friend,
and making my report in your hearing, but my health will not
permit. The year just closing has been one of the happiest of
my life and surely it has been the busiest. We have not only
made progress spiritually and numerically, but we have actually
seen the growth of the work with our own eyes. Usually one
plants, another waters, and another garners in the precious grain,
but we have planted in weakness, watered with tears of rejoicing
and gathered into the missionary garner grain that is gold. It
requires a great deal of patience, much prayer and long suffering
to be able to go into a place where the missionary zeal does not
run very high and rekindle the smoldering embers, or to go
where there is no Missionary Society and awaken enterest; but,
thank the Lord, he has used us to His glory and the report we
bring you is this:--We have seen renewed interest in every
society we have visited, and have been able to effect an organi-
zation at every point we visited, where there was none, both
among the women and children. We have visited all of the
charges in our Conference. A few by letter but for the most part
in person. We had dates for all points but the same cause that
keeps me from you tonight kept me from visiting each point--
ill health. During the year we have had the following organiza-
tions:--South Charleston, two,Women and Sunbeams; Wilming-
ton, two, Sunbeams and Mission school; Hillsboro, two, Women
