MR No. 630—Ellen White and Avondale College

At the seven o'clock meeting of the conference the subject of the need of establishing a school in the colonies was presented. W. C. White and Elder Tenney made appropriate remarks, and were listened to with deep interest.

At the nine o'clock meeting I read important matter in regard to our schools and the work that should be done in them.—Manuscript 45, 1891, 2. (Diary Fragments, December 28, 1891.)

This afternoon I had a very pleasant ride with Willie and Brother Rousseau. We spent the time profitably in talking about the preparation for and management of the school. I pray that this school shall be conducted in such a way as to glorify God. May every lesson given be filled with the riches of true knowledge.—Manuscript 35, 1892, 2. (Diary, August 7, 1892.)

Brother and Sister Rousseau are still with us, also Elder Israel's daughters, who are making up the linen for the school boarding home. I am very desirous that every dollar expended in preparing for the opening of this school shall be wisely invested. Strong, unbleached sheets and good, durable table linen have been bought. There are many things yet to be purchased.—Manuscript 35, 1892, 2, 3. (Diary, August 8, 1892.)

We are well pleased with the place that has been chosen for the school.—Manuscript 35, 1892, 4. (Diary, August 19, 1892.)
