Excerpt from President's Address
Before entering upon the subject of my address, I am sure I shall be pardoned for referring to the tragical end of one who was the life and soul of this Association, as well as of many good and interesting works in this county. It is through his invitation, indeed, that I am here to-day, and sorely do I miss his welcome and counsel. None saw the vain struggle, the parting agony of that chill, autumn day, but many will long remember how the little carriage was sadly led back to the desolate parsonage, no longer to be the home of the bereaved family. He has been taken from us by that mysterious Providence which for some wise purpose cuts off so many in their career of usefulness, leaving others who might, humanly speaking, have been much better spared.
