The session of Mt. Pleasant Church met and was opened with prayer. Present, Rev. C. C. Copeland, mod., Elders, Isaac Folsom, Nicholas Cochnauer.
Yoki (who had before conversed with the session) Bilsey Mosley, Onanchi, and Saini Moseley presented themselves to be examined as candidates for admission to the church. After examination, resolved that they be received.
Hapona who had been a member of the Methodist Church appeared and requested to be received to the care and fellowship of this church. But upon conversing with her, it appeared that she was still considered as a member of that church. The session advised her to obtain a letter of dismission from the Methodist Church and then present herself for admission to this church.
Jonas Frazier, a member of this church, appeared and confessed that he had sinned in getting angry. He appeared penitent, acknowledged his liability to err, and promised to be more watchful in the future. The Session on considering all the circumstance of the case so far as they were acquainted with them, resolved that after a public explanation of the circumstances of the case and a settlement of some misunderstanding with his brethren, he be considered as restored to the fellowship and confidence of the church.
Sholli, a member of this church, was called before the Session. It appeared that she had been forsaken by her husband and had been married to another man without having obtained a divorce from her former husband. She had applied for a divorce and might have lawfully obtained it. The session thought best after explaining to her the law in such a case to continue her church relation as she had committed the error in ignorance. Closed with prayer. C. C. Copeland, Mod.

It having appeared to the session that Sally Ann Batiste, a member of this church, had for a long time practiced the sin of lying, and that she has still persisted in her sinful conduct, therefore resolved that she be suspended from all the privileges of the church and that unless she manifest suitable repentance, her relation to this church must cease.
Betsey and Lasti presented themselves before the session as candidates for admission to the church, but as both of them were very young, after conversation with them and suitable encouragement, resolved that their case be deferred till some further opportunity. Closed with prayer. C. C. Copeland, Mod.
