Meeting held in Social Hall October 5th, 1874.  Opened by singing "Let us Renew". Prayer by Sister Simpson.  Minutes of a former meeting were read and accepted.
Sister Morrison remarked that the Society was at a standstill this month.  She wishes the sisters who visit the people at their homes to exhort and teach them the necessity of attending meetings. Mother Walker needs a supply of clothing for winter and also reminded us of the good teachings the brethren gave us the last week and hoped that we may put them in practice.  All the sisters spoke and felt good.
Sister Simpson felt well and hoped the poor will be supplied.  Sister Tregore needs some things; said if we trust in the Lord and do right - not forgetting that our children in the way they should.
Sister Morrison exhorted all to have their trust in God,  for He will not forsake his own.
