   THE WESTERN UNION BAPTIST ASSOCIATION
                         PROCEEDINGS.

                            CLEVELAND, O., Sept. 2, 1902.
    The Western Union Baptist Association of Ohio was called
to order by the Moderator, Rev. Dr. H. D. Prowd, at 10 a. m.
Psalm 23 was read, followed by singing hymn 66.  Scripture les-
son was read from Psalm 133, prayer by Rev. Dr. H. H. Mitch-
ell, Columbus, O.  Solo, "Christ is All,"  was  sung by Prof.
Curry. A general handshaking was had while "Bless be the Tie"

was sung.  The  address of welcome  was delivered by Sister
(Mrs.) Clara Evans.  It was a most hearty welcome, full of
spirit, and made all feel at home in the Forest city with the great
Baptist family.  She received the applause of the large number
of delegates present.
    Rev. J. J. Jackson, Cincinnati, was appointed by Moderator
Dr. Prowd, to respond.  In his usual manner of eloquence and
wit he accepted the welcome on behalf of the Association.  He
made timely mention of our work as Baptists owning 74 schools,
of which 40 are operated by Negro Baptists, the Publishing House
at Nashville and the newspapers that we send to all the world.
The spirit was high and all joined in singing, "Nearer My God
to Thee," as this was a full expression of the facts that after a
long march of trials and besetments,  the Negro is today nearer
to God than ever before.
    The illness of the companion of Rev. R. Meredith was re-
ported with the illness of Rev. N. A. Lewis, of Urbana, O. The
Association stood while Revs. Wyatt, H. C. Bailey and H. H.
Harris, petitioned the blessings of God upon the afflicted.
