IN BEHALF OF
CINCINNATI, MAY 5th, 1865.
To Whom it may Concern:
This is to certify that I am well acquainted with Newport, Ky., and feel the deepest solicitude to see a Methodist Episcopal Church built in the place. We have now over two hundred members, mostly poor, and there is an overshadowing Southern organization. I heartily commend the proposed effort
of the Trustees to erect a building, and bespeak for them a most liberal consideration.
JOHN MORRISON REID,
Editor of the Western Christian Advocate.
I concur in the foregoing most heartily.
