They feel that in losing him they are losing a most faithful and devoted friend and fellow laborer; that his influence has always been in the direction of the things they are purest and counsel helpful and right; that the removal of the heavy debt which rested upon the church at the beginning of his pastorate and the material improvement of the church property have been in no small measure due to his work and zeal; and that his labours have been crowned with benefits to the church which make it his permanent and grateful debtor."
