Mr. Parmele entered-upon his mission in January, and laboured in the service of the Society 34 days, in the counties of Ontario and Genesee. He rode 346 miles, preached 20 times, attended 3 conferences, visited one school, assisted in forming one church, administered the Lord's supper once, made twenty-seven family visits, and received for the funds of the society, $1 25 cents.
Mr. Collins received an appointment to labor eight weeks in the service of the society, in the Genesee country. From a statement of his labors transmitted by him to the secretary, it appears that he has performed but a part of his mission. He has already spent 35 days in missionary labor, preached 25 times, administered the Lord's supper twice, baptized several children, visited schools and families as he had opportunity, and received in contribution for the missionary fund 7 dollars.
Mr. Parker labored as a missionary four weeks in the month of March. The scene of his labors lay in the counties of Ontario and Genesee. On this mission he travelled 260 miles; preached 23 times, visited several schools and families, and collected for the missionary fund 14 dollars and 56 cents.
Mr. Parker has since performed a mission of 6 weeks in the county of Tioga, and in the head waters of the Tioga river in Pennsylvania. During his mission he rode 563 miles, preached 27 times, attended 7 conferences and 3 funerals, visited several schools and families, and received for the Society 4 dollars and 28 cents.
From the journals of these missionaries it appears they were, generally, received with cordiality, and there is reason to believe their labors have been useful. In a few places some special religious attention prevailed, particularly in the county of Tioga.
The Report of the Trustees, in 1813, states, that since the last annual meeting of the Society, several missionaries have labored in the missionary field, under the direction of the Trustees.
Mr. Lyman Barritt, a candidate for the gospel ministry, commenced a mission for four weeks, to the county of Steuben, in the month of October last.
While engaged in the mission he preached 21 times, made 37 family visits, travelled about 200 miles, and received in donation to the Society 4 dollars and 4 1-2 cents.
In the months of December and January, Mr. Barritt performed four weeks more of missionary service, in the counties of Steuben, Allegany and Ontario. During this tour he preached 23 times, visited 37 families and received in donations 5 dollars.
In the month of October, Rev. Dávid Tuller and Rev. Oliver Ayer, performed one week of missionary labor each, under the direction of the Trustees, in the north and north-east part of the county of Ontario, and organized a church in Green's settlement, in the town of Sodus.
Mr. Tuller preached 3 times, administered the Lord's supper once, and made a number of family visits. Mr. Ayer preached 7 times and made 12 family visits.
In the months of October and November Mr. Orange Lyman, a candidate for the gospsl ministry, performed three weeks missionary labor under an appointment from the Committee of Trustees. His labors were confined to the northern part of the counties of Ontario, Seneca and Cayuga: he preached 16 times, and performed other missionary duties as he had opportunity.
In the months of December and January Mr. Daniel Butrick, a candidate for the gospel ministry, labored as a missionary in the service of the Society 2 weeks. The field of his labor was in the counties of Ontario, Seneca and Cayuga. During his mission he preached 15 times, and visited 12 families and 4 schools.
In the month of July, Rev. Reuben Parmele performed a missionary tour of two weeks in the county of Genesee. He preached 13 times, visited 2 schools, baptized 2 children, and administered the Lord's supper once, beside family visitations.
Mr. Lyman Barritt performed another missionary tour of 2 weeks in the northern part of Ontario and Seneca counties, in the month of September. He preached 17 times, visited 23 families, and received for the Society from Southwick's settlement, in the town of Junius, 4 dollars and 50 cents.
All these missionaries were engaged in the service of the Society for 7 dollars a week, excepting Mr. Robert Hubbard, who, for ten weeks service, accepted of only 20 dollars and 58 cents.* From the journals of the missionaries it appears that 75 weeks of missionary service have actually been performed, and 426 sermons been preached.
The amount of the contributions in the new settlements, received from the hands of missionaries, is 94 dollars and 17 1-2 cents.
The whole amount of monies expended for the support of missionary preaching, and for other missionary purposes, is 518 dollars and 74 cents.
Now remaining in the Treasury a balance of $318 and 73 cents. JANUARY 27, 1814.
