in a letter from Archdeacon Small to
resident of New Westminster. No details of the melancholy event are give
in the letter, beyond the fact that Mr. Ii
win's death occurred in a hospital i
Montreal, and that both the deceased1
feet  had   been   badly frozen.    " Father
Pat," as   Mr
called by tho
affec
of the people of this
province, was clergyman beloved and esteemed for his unselfish character and
the zeal with which he labored for the
good of the people among whom his lot
might be cast. No labor was too great,
no journey too difficult or trying for him
to take to minister to the sick or dying.
In the mining and railway camps of
Southern British Columbia " Father
Pat " was as well known as he was popular, and his cheery voice and helping
hand have often cast a ray of light and
comfort in the sick chamber or the solitary cabin in the mountains.

Mr. Skinner, smiling, " As yet I
