To the General Supt-ency of the Sunday School Union. -

Dear Brethren

having made quite a lengthy delay in Submitting to you; a report of the inrole ment or rather non inrollment of children over five years of age in the Sunday Schools of this Stake - as requested in your circular - We feel it due that we Should give the reasons for the delay. First - the Superintendents failed to understand the circulars sent them thus made no immediate move in the matter. We therefore made Special visits and communications to them instructing and urging a prompt responce. Some still delay and a portion of those who have made an effort have failed to insert the most important item - the number of children in their District over 5 years of age not inroled. - this failure with a few still delinquent places it beyond our reach at present to give an intelligible and correct report. Therefore if there is still time With your approval We will make an another effort - Reducing the items to one only - that is how many children in the Districts over 5 years of age not enrolled in the sabath schools - We have the enrollment in the yearly reports This application will be limited to those who have failed to give the item and those Delinquent.

Your felow Servants - N J Porter
