Dear John I am enjoying good health and hope you are enjoying the same. I have just come home from the Episcopal church none of the rest went for they thought it was to stormy but the minister did not come I suppose he thought it was to stormy for the people to come his name is Mr Hudson. this morning Anna and I went to the Methodist church and I expect to go again this evening his name is Mr. Springer, he is a very smart preacher. I went to the prayer meeting twice in the Methodist church and I liked it very well the Presbyterian ministers name is Mr. Vangant and I don't know what the Baptist ministers name is. I have heard all of them preach and they all read their sermons but Mr. Springer and he is the best preacher
