“MEMORIAL WINDOW DEDICATED”

“Last Sunday morning, there was a crowded congregation at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Cecil street, when a fine memorial window, presented by the three sisters of he late Miss K. Paxton, was dedicated by the Rev. James Walker. The window, which is a representation of Dorcas, the Biblical character, and her work, was executed by Brooks Robinson and Co., and is situated on the east side fronting Cecil street. Special singing suitable for the occasion was rendered by the choir. Another noticeable addition is the carpeting of the floor of the church, the cost of which was subscribed by voluntary offerings, and for which Mr. Hutchinson was the organiser.

Note: Dorcas is also known as ‘Tabitha’.
