John W. Sharp - Reporting from Hickman County, Tennessee 1877

Friday March 23 1877

The Deseret News reports news from Elder John W. Sharp, now laboring in Hickman County, Tennessee. "We learn from it (letter) that himself and Elder Argyle are doing a good work. A spirit of active inquiry regarding the principles of the gospel have been awakened among the people thereabouts, many of whom flock together to hear those two Elders preach. The latter are also kept busy till late at nights answering questions about "Mormonism". Recently several persons gave their names for baptism, and others appear to be on the point of doing the same. The missionaries named feel much encouraged in their labors"
