The Daily Dispatch: November 27, 1860., [Electronic resource], Anniversary meeting. (search)
Anniversary meeting. --The anniversary meeting of the Missionary Society of the Virginia Conference was celebrated at Alexandria on Saturday evening. Addresses were delivered by Bishop Payne, Dr. Sehon, missionary secretary, and James A. Duncan, of the Virginia Conference, and upwards of $1,500 were collected on various propositions, and fifty life-members made. A venerable lady, Mrs. Ballon, aged 81 years, a widow of one of the old pioneers of the Conference, wrought with her own hands a quilt, which was presented as a donation to the missionary society. One hundred dollars were quickly raised to purchase this as a present for Bishop Payne, and twenty dollars additional to make her a life-member.
