Richard C. Camp Reports from Weakley County Tennessee 1881

On this day in 1881

March 22nd 1881

Elder R[ichard C.] Camp writes of his experiences doing missionary work in Kentucky and Tennessee. He and companion, James W. Eardley, had made a circuit through Weakley, Henry and Carroll Counties in Tennessee recently. They were unable to obtain houses in which to hold meetings, officials making different excuses for refusing the Elders. In Huntington, Carroll County, they had obtained a hail and held a meeting with a good attentive audience. Elder [James W.] Eardley was sent to Perry County, and Elder Camp labored for a time in Kentucky. Shortly after returning to Dresden, he was joined by Elder D[aniel] R. Bateman of West Jordan, Utah . Elder Camp reports that they had held a number of meetings, and friends had been raised up to them in time of need.
