Stuff like this ...

           We’re trying to document Russell’s missionary travels between 1879 and 1890. If you can help, that would be good. Don’t assume we know something. Send any information you may have. I’m especially interested in newspaper announcements and any outside notice.

            If you have or locate later articles, send those too. Here’s an example from the Wheeling, West Virginia, Daily Intelligencer of December 8, 1898. Small articles such as this one help give us insight into Russell’s activity. Never ignore them. Send them along as you find them.

Here you have another add of a Russell's discourse. Sorry if you knew it.

"In the Bible House auditorium. Arch street, Allegheny. C T. Russell will discourse afternoon and evening. In tbe evening there wilt be a questioners' meeting, at which questions from tbe audience on Bible subjects will be entertained."

(The Pittsburgh Dispatch, 1890, May 24, p.12)

The Pittsburgh Dispatch, 1889, April 1, p.5 under title "Church vs. Tracts" there is an incident that I think can be related to one member of Bible Students at Arch Street, and the name of a Rev. Charles T. Russell is mentioned.
