MR No. 535—Secretarial Work in the SDA Church

In connection with my work Dores, has reported my sermons, and has helped on my book work. Clarence Crisler has also engaged in this line of work. This work will continue to be done by Brother Crisler and also by Dores Robinson.—Letter 340, 1908, pp. 2, 3. (To S. N. Haskell, December 9, 1908.) 8MR 21.1

Sister Helen Graham has been with us for several years. She is W. C. White's stenographer, and is excellent help in the office.... 8MR 21.2

Miss Mary Steward is one of my staff workers. In the office each worker has a separate room, for in almost every room a typewriter is being run.—Letter 356, 1908, pp. 1, 2. (To Marion Stowell-Crawford, December 13, 1908.) 8MR 21.3

You are acquainted with the workers in the office. These are Clarence Crisler, Dores Robinson, Miss Steward, Miss Hawkins, and Miss Graham. I find Miss Steward an excellent worker. I can talk freely with her at any time. She lives close by in the little cottage, for which she pays five dollars a month rent. Minnie Hawkins is also a good worker.—Letter 18, 1909, p. 1. (To Edson and Emma White, typed January 13, 1901.) 8MR 21.4

I wish to write words that shall remove from the minds of any of my brethren the impression that I did not, before their publication, read the pages in Testimony for the Church, volume nine.... My discourses are reported, and what I write by hand is copied out by faithful helpers. Before any of this matter is printed, it is read over and closely examined by me.—Letter 94, 1910, pp. 1, 2. (To William Duce, July 12, 1910.) 8MR 21.5
