    Excerpt from An Historical Sermon in Connection With St. Barnabas Church, (Also Known as "Brick Church,") Queen Anne's Parish, at Leeland, Prince George's County, Maryland

    Over two hundred years ago, that is to say, in the Year of Our Lord 1692, the then ten counties of the Province of Maryland were divided, for the more convenient administration of Church matters, into thirty-one Parishes, of which St. Paul's was one, stretching from the southernmost line of what is now Prince George's County to what is now the northern boundary of Holy Trinity Parish.

    Twelve years later, i. E., on December 9th, 1704, being the second year Of the reign of Queen Anne, St. Paul's Parish was divided by the Provincial Assembly, and the northern portion was constituted a separate Parish with the designation of Queen Anne's Parish, the Parish Church thereof being called St. Barnabas, our Parish Church of today.

    The Old Parish Record, out of which the material here pre sented has been extracted, is rapidly falling into decay its time stained pages, especially the earlier portions, fading into oblivion and its crumbling leaves, the original leathern binding all gone excepting a few narrow shreds, reminding us that unless some such effort as this be made to snatch its leading facts from the closing grave of the past, the burial of those facts must be the next step in the process of time.

    I am the more impelled to make this effort, because the minds and the hearts in which these facts have been treasured, your fathers and mothers, men and brethren, and far remoter ancestry, men and women who link us of today with a venerable and hon ored history, have almost all fallen asleep. And, we, their children, plunged now into a new order of things, struggling for very life, the seething tide dashing fragments of all wrecks against us from every quarter - whatever else we lose, cannot afiord to lose, for ourselves and for those who come after us, one particle of the stay and inspiration that comes from the priceless, change less heritage of truth and fact and life, which the Church hands down to each generation of her children for jealous and loving transmittal.
