                               WILBERFORCE, OHIO, July 2, 1903.
     DEAR PRESIDENT AND CO WORKERS IN THE GREAT MISSION
CAUSE:-We are sorry to say that our dear sister is too ill to meet you
all in this convention.  She grew worse yesterday, so we were obliged
to send our report by and through the kindness of our dear venerable
 Bishop Arnett, and he will be both mouth and wisdom for us. And
if he is overworked will you please to lend one of your workers to
this work?  And please smile upon the children's progressive effort
of Junior Rally Day.  Also if dear bishop brings books for sale, the
Kaffir primer, please sell some for the children, at 10c each. God
will bless you.  I am praying for your success.  God bless and carry
on the work.
                     Yours in the battle for Christ,
                                        MRS.  MARY JANE SISCO.
