THE PASTOR'S RECEIPTS.
To the Editor.
Sik, —Bmnour hath it that a certain self constituted inquisitor made eager and unauthorised enquiries as to how the “ Chiniquy JV.ission ” fared at the hands of the church officials where the Pastor preached the other Sunday, and after an oblique and velvetty style, suggested the probability of their getting a little perquisite on the occasion. How far this may be true is beyond the power of yours respectfully to say ; but as the officers of one of the churches took evident pains to early anticipate and allay feverish minds, I suggest what a kind act it would be if the responsible parties would make a clean breast of their accounts in reference to the Pastor’s visit, lecture, Ac. ; as from want of such full information some highly esteemed though occasionally “ illogical ” citizen may be in a state of ferment. The statement in the “ Mail,” though sufficient for most persons, would be altogether too sparse for those who have the bump of f inquisitiveness so largely developed that they can no more be still than one can who suffers from St. Vitus’ Dance.
