The story of life in the pastorate, Chapter 2: "The Young Preacher and the Old Church."

"This is a pleasant surprise in many ways. The author is Rev. W. T. Meloy, D. D., of the United Presbyterian Church of Chicago...It is a love story, not 'fascinating,' but with so much of genial interest that the reader is in no danger of laying it down unfinished...The moral purpose of the book is to describe and vindicate Christian character, in its more heroic aspects, and it is a success. We congratulate the author...on this literary lily of the valley." - The Interior, as quoted in Catalogue of the Publications of the United Presbyterian Board of Publication (1884), publishers of the first edition.
