A transcription of the obituary published in the Minutes of Conference by David T. Mann is attached. He writes as follows:”Our brother lived much in the ideal, in contemplation of the mind of Christ, yet he was no mere dreamer, but manifested a strong practical wisdom with his idealism. His sermons were deeply coloured by both. He seta high ideal of life, and coupled with it practical guidance for its realisation. He had a lofty and dignified conception of the preacher’s office. The pulpit to him was the Holy of Holies—hallowed with intense sanctity. It was no place for a jest, but to prophetically declare, in clear and dignified language, high and holy truth. He had a Gospel—the Gospel of the Cross realised in his own experience, and to it he was passionately loyal.”
