A. G. Daniells gave a partial report as to the work of the Locating Committee in the search for the Eastern headquarters. Locations had been looked at in New Jersey and up the Hudson, and in Rhode Island.
TWENTY-NINTH MEETING GENERAL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE,
College View, Neb. 6:30 a. m., June 19, 1903.
Members Present! The same brethren, with the addition of U.P, Nelson.
Prayer by F. Griggs.
The time was spent in further discussion of the work of the Locating Committee. The Chairman described the situation offered at Washington, and read letters from J. S, Washburn relative to this location. A rural place within the District Of Columbia offered land very cheap, with good railway and street car connections. A building could also be rented at a reasonable figure. Sister White had advised investigating Washington very carefully, and warned against getting too near New York City.
A. G, DAWIBLLS, Chairman, – W. A, SPICER, Secretary.
