This was followed by a presentation to Mrs Hagen of a bible beautifully inscribed, Mrs Conrad making the presentation. Mrs Hagen very fittingly responded and promised not to let her interest in the work lag. and stated further that since St Matthews had really no organization she felt as if she were an outsider. He however assured her that such was not the case
