“Unveiling a Memorial Window.- At the opening of the morning service at Holy Trinity Church yesterday a beautifully-stained glass window, which has been erected by members of the congregation to the memory of he late Mr. P. Lord Johnston, who was a warden of the church for a number of years, was unveiled by the Bishop of Tasmania. The choir assembled opposite the window, and sang hymn No. 403, “Jesus calls us o’er the Tumult.” Bishop Mercer preached a very able sermon from the text “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” His Lordship made pointed reference to the life of the late Mr. Herbert Spencer, the noted author, whose death occurred in England last week, remarking that his works would never pass away. After the service a large number of the congregation, the church being nearly full, closely inspected the window, which is a splendid piece of work executed by Mr. W. Montgomery, of Melbourne. The figure on it represents St. Andrew, and at the bottom are the words:- “In memory of P.L. Johnston.” The memorial has been erected on the Cameron-street side of the building.”
