exercises in commemoration of the One Hundredth Anniversary
of its organization.
It would be a great pleasure to me to accept this invitation
and to be with you on some occasion between October ioth and
15th, but unfortunately I have pressing duties in the city and also
must visit the Synod of Ohio, next week.
If you will pardon a personal reference allow me to say that
I was pastor of the second oldest Presbyterian Church in New
York (Scotch Presbyterian Church) for twenty-four years and
drew up a program for the One Hundredth and Fortieth and
One Hundredth and Fiftieth Anniversaries of that historic
church. I know what it means therefore to celebrate the One
Hundredth Anniversary of church life. I congratulate the Sec-
ond Presbyterian Church of Lexington, Ky., that God in His
providence has permitted the church to have continued existence
of a century and I earnestly trust that the future will be far
more glorious even than the past. I am, with best wishes for
DAVID G. WYLIE.
