    Call for Power-Press and Engine

    In the Review of March 19, 1857, the suggestion was first made that a power-press and engine was needed and should be obtained for the printing of the papers, tracts, and books. As reported April 2, the decision was made to buy an Adams power-press, and seven men pledged $100 each toward its purchase. In the following issue a statement was made that the press and engine would cost some $2,500, and pledges had already been raised to $1,700.GSAM 288.4

    In an editorial from Elder White in the Review of Aug. 13, 1857, is this encouraging statement: “Our office is free. There is a general book fund of $1,426, now invested in books. The new power-press is in operation and works beautifully, and the prospect is fair that it will soon be running by steam power, and all paid for. Our tent operations are far better sustained than formerly.”GSAM 289.1
