REVEREND FRANCIS JAMES MEADOWS COTTER
FRANCES JAMES MEADOWS COTTER was an Episcopal priest who spent the years 1912-1921 as a missionary in Wuchang, on the Yangtze River in central China. When a bomb intended for communist revolutionaries crashed through his roof and landed unexploded, he decided it was time to return to the US. When he wrote this note of appreciation, he was returning to ministerial duties in a Rhode Island church. Born in China to Frances and Ida Cotter were three children, including daughter Jayne. Later Jayne and her younger sister Audrey, born in the US, began performing as The Meadows sisters, and carried that name through their long, successful entertainment careers. Cotter was thus the father in law of TV comedian Steve Allen.
