The majority of the items in this folder are approximately 15 “Our Weekly Message” and roughly the same number of “Our Weekly Visit” columns. The dates and names of the papers do not appear on the clippings; according to the Register, “Our Weekly Visit” appeared in the Grantsville News, with “other featured columns” published in the Huntington Herald-Dispatch.

Some items appear to be duplicates of articles in Series III, Folder 3. Topics range from pastoral visitation to the value of optimism and a clear conscience to an anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Other items in this folder include an assortment of “Corner Couplets,” an article on Cummings’ hymn entitled “Has Your Heart Been Warmed?,” and a letter to the editor of the Grantsville News written under the name “Parson Jones.”
