1 A few paragraphs from Rev. Mr. Brown's sermon are of interest:— ‘The life of James Hill is intimately connected with a large portion of the history of this church and society. . . . For thirty years he was a member of our choir. . . . He was gentlemanly in his deportment, kind and conciliatory in his spirit, industrious and temperate in his habits. . . . He was devoted to agricultural pursuits, and ranked among the first farmers of our village. . . . He was not impulsive, but ever self-poised, and restrained by deep-rooted principle. . . . His devotedness to public worship cannot have been unobserved. Through storm and sunshine he was here to take his accustomed seat. . . . The last simple and beautiful act of our venerable friend, before reason had deserted her throne, was to bow in family worship. . . . His early life was marked by great precision of character.’
