"...with a view to lay before them the historical facts connected with the unjust, uncharitable, and unwise treatment of me at St. Mark's Church, and to show the various efforts I have made to secure a reversal of the unrighteous verdict pronounced against me the Pastor and Council."
Louis L. Houpt had been for some years a lay leader at St. Mark's and after the arrival of a new pastor became entangled with a church dispute in such a way that the new pastor cast aspersions on his character and honesty. Mr. Houpt herein attempts to vindicate himself.
