President- Charles A. Callis, Thomas Wilson, Clarence H. Yates.

The conference at Memphis, Sept. 25th and 26th, was a splendid success. Pres. Callis was with us, stopping over a couple of days before leaving for the West to attend the general conference. He delivered powerful discourses on the principles of the Gospel. The traveling elders spoke well and with convincing power. The priesthood meetings were spirited and all enjoyed the counsel and advice received. Elder Henry Child, of the Virginia Conference, was present at our conference. He has been assigned to labor with us and we welcome him as our companion.
