The response from the field was uniform and favorable. The month of November was given over to erecting the little publishing house on the southeast corner of Washington and Main streets in the western edge of Battle Creek, and to moving both the press and the families connected with the Advent Review office. The White family moved into a little cottage that they rented for $1.50 a week. The general conference, which had been called for Friday, November 16, met in the newly constructed house of worship, a building 18' x 24' (six meters x seven meters), provided for the Battle Creek congregation of 24 (RH, Aug. 22, 1935). It was one of three church buildings erected in 1855.
