Dear Ethel;-

	The Old Universalist Church of Lebanon located in the
North west Corner of Lot 56, the next building South of the Solomon 
Gates House which was the first house on the West side of the road
leading from Lebanon Village over to Lebanon Reservoir South of
the road turning off of this road to go down into Lebanon Center
was torn down probably 20 years ago. The Cemetery back of this
church is now practically demolished, the stones down and covered
up. When the church was still standing I copied the inscriptions
on these stones and believing that they should be preserved am send-
ing a copy for file with the Lebanon Cemetery records of which
Association you are Secretary.
