ork and Chester, to Chesterville, South Carolina, by the wagon train, a distance of one hundred and fifty miles. Two weeks were consumed in the trip.
At Chesterville we took the train for Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Heralds now on hand have been brought two hundred miles by Government wagons free of charge.
The first Sabbath in the month I spent in Milledgeville, Georgia, and preached for Brother George Yarbrough, who gave me the welcome of a brother.
The second Sunday I was in Thomson, Georgia, where I took up a collection of $206 for your association, preached there twice, and once at night in Warrenton, Georgia, when our wagon train was passing through.

Then I was at Spring Place, Dalton, The Rock, Thomaston, Barnesville, and a camp-meeting in Upson county, Georgia.
Then to La Fayette, and on to Chickamauga.
Could not preach on Sunday, September 13, our division was marching
