Letter, 7 August 1834, of W.W. Childers, Darlington, to F.M. Hawkins, Sumterville
Letter, 7 August 1834, of W.W. Childers, Darlington, to F.M. Hawkins, Sumterville, requests that Hawkins secure Childers' personal papers and safeguard them until his return.

"If there should come any letters to the village for me you will oblige me very much by taking charge of them. The first opportunity you have I wish you would enquire at the office if there has been a bundle left there for me if there has you will take that also-in your care. Every thing you see of mine you will oblige me by taking it into your possession." "We held our meeting on Saturday and Sunday," the letter continues. "There appeared to be some feeling but no great excitement. I was very much dejected on Saturday when I remembered what a good meeting we had left to come where every thing appeared dead and cold. But I am sure that the Lord will hear prayer." Childers expected to preach there "a short time" and then to "travel about the country to different appointments. I have the promise of a horse to do so."
