From the Report on the Religious Condition of the Country: "The population of Oregon is variously estimated from 70,000 to 100,000 people. They are scattered over an area of about three and a half degrees of latitude, and as many of longitude. While the large majority live in the Willamette Valley, in convenient neighborhoods, yet judging from the votes, probably one-tenth of the people live east of the Cascade Mountains. From all the information at hand, we judge that there are about 8,000 to 10,000 members of Evangelical churches in the State, or one to every ten of the people." Short accounts of the congregations at Portland, Astoria, Dalles, Albany, Forest Grove, and Oregon City are given.

600 copies of these minutes were ordered to be printed.
