An Ideal Place

“The second conference of this summer was held July 21-31 in New York State on Lake George. This is the fourth annual one at this place, surely an ideal place for coming apart to be with God. Nature here is superb. Silver Bay is a cove where the lake is two miles wide and surrounded by hills thickly wooded with white birches, chestnuts and pines. Among these hills tumble brooks fed by springs in the rocks, and beds of fragrant pine needles or moss and ferns run rival attractions with the higher cliffs and broader views of the lake and surrounding mountains.”

— “The Young People’s Missionary Conference at Silver Bay” by Elizabeth Goucher in The Chinese Recorder (1906)
