Meeting in the Meeting House Jan 29 1875. Opened with singing "How Beauteous Are Their Feet". Prayer by Sister Peel. Sister Morrison addressed the meeting and said it was impossible to accomplish anything without the assistance of God and each other. Thought that to assist the poor in their bodily comforts was less important than to assist them in their spiritual welfare. She made some remarks in regard to home industry, of raising silk (worms), straw hats and working up wool, etc. The following petition was read and subsequently signed by ninety three sisters:
To Our Brethren of Mt. Pleasant City. We the Sisters of the Female Relief Society present before you this memorial. Being much impressed with the propriety of raising up our children in the fear of the Lord, Our God. Those little ones whom God hath consigned to our care as the sons and daughters of Zion and to whom we are accountable that they be instructed in the right way, and that this important duty cannot be consigned to the care or tuition of any teacher of any other communion than that of the True and Living God.
