The fourth in a series of scarce reports by the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming. This report describes the state of church activities in those places, as well as in Idaho, with accounts of Randall's visits. He describes not only the status of the ministries, but the conditions in towns large and small, mining operations (and a recent hurricane) in Colorado, hot springs in Idaho, etc. Santa Fe and La Missila, New Mexico, Randall reports, are still lacking ministers. The illustrations include Jarvis Hall in Golden, Colorado (destroyed by the hurricane), and Wolfe Hall in Denver, and the map shows a large swath of the Rocky Mountain West, with the locations of churches, parochial schools, forts with Episcopal ministers, and more. OCLC locates only three copies of this report, at the Huntington Library, the New-York Historical Society, and BYU. Scarce, and containing useful information. OCLC 228711641, 58659484.
