To the Editor of the “Bulletin”
Dear Sir,
I beg for a little space to express my
yegret to learn of the depariure from our
rmidst of one whose usefulness had begun to
make itself felt inso many different direc
tions. I refer to Mr. E. Branch, who leaves to
day for Guadeloupe.
Although we have so frequently to part
with those whom we estzem, yet it is a thing
to which we can scarcely become so accustom
¢d as not to experience deep regret whenever
there 18 a recurrence,
Mr. Branch will be missed by almost every
body, but especially by the members of the
several institutions with which he has been
connected, and I am confident thet I am ex
pressing the sentiments of every appreciative
member of this community, when 1 say we
wish him God speed.
p For the members of the Choir of St. John's
Church I beg to express my warmest sympa
thy; and I trust their departing leader will
be leaving with them a large portion of that
zeal and whole-heartedness wgich has char.
acterized his management of the Choir.
1t will be interesting to the members of St.
John’s Church to be informed that a series of
concerts to be given for the benefit of the
funds of our Church, is projected, and that
Mr. Branch’s services were very largely cal
culated upon; his departure will, however,
only modify, not dastroy the scheme, a fuller
account of which will be given later on.
May Heaven's choicest blessings attend
onr young friend throughout his future life,
and may he fin!{ an ample field for his useful
ness and activity in the island whither he has
been called to reside,
I :m dear Sir,
Yours faithfully; .
