My next scheduled meeting is with the church at Damon, Texas, October 5-11, where brother James Moore labors. Brother Owen McGee of West Columbia is now preaching regularly for the church at Brazoria, Texas, following brother T, E. Webb who did a good work there."

If anyone has any copies of the Advocate before 1943 for sale. I would appreciate hearing from them."
