“'BETSY AND I ARE OUT.' Dibden. - Dec. 22 is a day that we shall remember, 7 p.m. found the Mission Hall nicely full of happy faces, and at 7.15 a very nice entertainment began. Our Rector was with us and gave us a very good reading, 'Betsy and I are out,' and he was also kindly promised to give us another pleasant evening with his lantern, which we hope to have on Jan. 21. This is the Second Anniversary of the Forest View Mission, and we are very thankful to the kind friends who give so liberally of their money, etc., to keep on the work in this part of God's field where it is so much needed. [...] T. for Capt. Wheeler.”
