Louisville and Vicinity Pastors' Conference
From The Baptist World, 1912
G. W. Argabrlte presided.

J. N. Binford was chosen temporary secretary.

Evangelist Mordecai Ham sang, on request, a delightful solo.

The new member, Millard A. Jenkens, was welcomed with handclappings, and Henry Alford Porter was asked to speak words of welcome, which proved gracious and appreciative.

W. M. Bruce reported being at Winona Bible Conference, and that Prof. A. T. Robertson had a notable reception and his three lectures were heard by growing audiences. He was engaged to return next year.

J. M. Fowler reported spending a summer of strenuous work holding meetings and speaking at mission institutes and filling his regular engagements.

Rev. E. J. Smith concluded his summer supply at Broadway, a most acceptable supply. Pastor Landrum will be home this week.
