    Excerpt from A Historical Sermon on "Presbyterianism in Lawrence": Preached in the First Presbyterian Church on the 2d Sabbath of April, 1887

The Presbytery of Iowa had deposed him from the ministry before he found his way to Kansas. By some back door arrangement he had found renewed ministerial recognition by the Presbytery of Highland, and so became the acting pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Lawrence. His stay, of course, was short, only about six or nine months but during that brief time the harmony of the Church was so utterly broken up, its recently bright prospects for strength and usefulness had so14 historical sketch OF first presbyterian church.
