A PASTOR'S VACATION TRIP.
MR. EDITOR:---
Most ministers take their vacation in summer. We chose November for ours. We left Yaphank on the 10th and visited the following places. Woodhaven where the Long Island Bible Society was held, Brooklyn, Allentown, N.J. where we heard a fine sermon from Rev. George Swain D. D., Trenton, Dutch Neck where was held a Sabbath School Anniversary with over 200 wagons in attendance, Jamesburg where the Rev. Francis Smiley was holding interesting evangelistic services, Newark, Junction, N.J. where we heard a good sermon by the Rev. A. L. Kelly on Rebecca, or right principles in courtship.
At New York we visited the American Institute Fair, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cave, the Menagerie and other interesting scenes in Central Park. Strangers should visit these.
At Jamesburg we visited the Boys' State Reform School. It is well managed by Mr. Otterson.
At Richmond Hill we attended the local union of all the Y.P.S. of C.E. in the town.
Thanksgiving day was spent at Jamaica, L.I. where at the union service in the Reformed church an admirable sermon was delivered by Rev. J. Howard Hobbs.
We return to Yaphank on the 28th after a pleasant trip believing that November as well as August is a good time to take a vacation trip. J.M.D.
