"The most notable event in recent Rhode Island history occurred

April 10, when the whole State Conference, association, and even
neighbors across the line, gathered in the beautiful church at Central
Falls to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the pastorate of Rev.
James H. Lyon. There have been long pastorates in this seaboard
state, notable, historical even, but at present none beside this stretches

the spontaneity of the church was only equaled by the hearty love
and delight of every minister and layman throughout the conference.

tored" — summed up the years in a sermon saturated by the radiant
wit, keen intelligence, and exquisite English of which he is master.

after the other to praise, to reverence, to congratulate until even the

unable to hide his blushes. Speeches, letters, poetry simply poured

here below.

a more brilliant and clever address delighted a critical crowd."
