At eighty years of age he made an appeal for the support of the institutions of the church: "If you but knew in what poverty, troubles, trials, and labors we began to lay the foundation of the church fifty years ago. You cannot conceive how it was then. Here we were in this vast and lonely wilderness, surrounded with huge trees, thickets, and all kinds of wild animals that often devoured our crops. Dear Brothers in Christ you can now more easily obtain twenty dollars than we could at that period. Come brethren, and gladden the heart of an old pioneer eighty years of age. May I have the pleasure of reading in the 'Standard' that our Christian Church is free of debt."
