Details: In 1895 Mr. Bain, after thirty-five years of faithful service, retired from active work. He occupied the Chair of the General Assembly in 1887, and for thirty-seven years was Clerk of the Presbytery of the Hunter, from which position he retired in 1904. The Presbytery made him a valuable gift of plate upon his retirement. The Rev. John Downey, M.A., B.D., was the next minister, being inducted in November, 1895. In April, 1902, he was translated to Victoria. The Rev. Thomas S. Crawford, M.A. — one of our own students- is the present minister, having been inducted in February, 1903.
