Temperance rule—for the change, 7;

Choctaw Nation. We are much in-
debted to our kind friend and sister, the
excellent wife of Bishop Kacaniugh,
for the following letter, which will be
read with inter-.st and pleasure:
mrs KAVANAUGH's letter.
Mr Editor:—In the multiplicity
of business incident to the fir«t d .y o
the opening of a Conference, I feel in-
clined to relieve Bishop Kavanaugh ot
a promise to write a letter for 'he West-
ern, Method id, giving an account of his
trip from Louisville to the seat of the
Indian Mission Conference.
I must offer an apology for assuming
the responsibility of writing. The de-
sire to do something on the work, and
this presenting as the only thing I could
do, this first morning of the Confer-
ence, whilst resting from a fatigue of a
travel of eighty miles by Btage, I offer
my humble efforts to supply the de-
We lefc Louisville on the night of
Oct. 15, en route by St. L mis, stopping
three days in that growing city, mak-
ing our home with the family of our
friend and relative, the Rev. J. W.
Lewis. The St. Louis Conference be-
ing in session, the pastor of Sc. John's
Church was absent, and Bishop Kav-
anaugh preached in his church to a
large and attentive audience. Ascer-
taining that we could not leaVe for the
Indian Mission Conference until Mon-
day n'ght, we passed the day very
pleasantly with our hostess, Mrs. Lewis,
whose kind and hospitable manner in-
duced many of our friends to call, and
some to dine with u?. At nine o'clock
at night the considerate kindness of
Brother A mot conveyed us to the de-
pot, where wc took a sleeping car on
the Mtesouii, K ansae, and Texas rail-
road, which conveyed us without change
to the new town of Eufaula, the pres-
ent landing poiut of the Indian Mis-
sion Conference. Starting to a new
work without definite instruction as to
the poiut to stop, lauding at seven
o clock at night, no gnsilluruiuated
city to welcome our approach, only
some dim lights in a few buildings that
have gone up in that new town, you
may well imagine a cjrtain degree of
nervousness when informed by the con-
ductor, "This is your landing." Bit
imagine our relief when, upon descend-
ing the 8tep3 of the car, we heard the
wnlcjome sound of, "How do you do,
Bishop Kavanaugh," uttered by an old
frieud of the Bishop, the preseut Su-
perintendent of the Creek Indian Mie-
sion School, the Itav. Y. Ewing, who
had driven two miles in the night to
convey us to our appointed home.
There was light all along the way, fc r
the clear bright moon shed her rays
over the path, enabling us to avoid the
projecting limbs and the washed gul-
lies in< ident to a dirt road. What put
it into the heart of that kind broth* r
r.o come two nights in advance of the
Conference day, two miles, after night,
to meet his Bishop, I will leave for re-
sponse to hearts engaged in the cause.
At ten o'clock we were comfortably
resting at the home of Dr. Buckner,
the Baptist missionary of the Creek
Nation. Every thing was done by the
kind family to promote our comfort
and convenience. We were conveyed
back and forth to the Mission School,
where the Conference met. We dined
the first and third day at the School,
in company with a number of the
preachers and about forty or fifty of the
Indian students, most of the male
students having been dismissed for a
few days to make r^om for the ( on-
The C mference continued in session
three days—a very pleasant and satis-
factory session, nearly all of the preach-
ers present, I think—numbering seven-
The citizens came in from the sur-
rounding country to attend the Confer-
ence, and the afternoon preaching at
three o'clock. The appointments were
