A former member of Dexter, Cole donated a Communion table to the church in memory of his mother.

Rev. M. L. King Jr.

Dear Sir:-

Your kind letter received to day and very glad to hear from you. I am happy to know the Cummunion Table is in the process of making and will be delivered soon.

I am more than happy to know Dexter has a leader now and a good Pastor I pray for your continued success. I shall do {all} I can to help my church. I still consider Dexter my church as I can never forget my church. I believe the people of the South are beginning to be like the Northern people. No night service. We can hardly get enough people out in some churches to have a prayer meeting.

I have often wondered what could be done to stimulate the evening services. I hope to visit Montgomery this Spring & I hope to see the table.

May God’s blessings be upon you and family.

Sincerely Yours
[signed] William J Cole.
