... One spoke in tongues & Brother Covington interpeted it. The following is the substance of it:
That you should not give heed to the medium & spirit rappers that are in the land. For when the Lord sent the Holy Ghost anciently to the servants of God it came in the form of a dove. And when the Holy Ghost came to Abraham while He was bound & about to be slain by the Priest of Elkena He came in the form of a Dove & so when He came to Jesus He came in the form of a Dove. We continued our meeting through evening & had a good time.
