$26 07 The undersigned avails himself of the opportunity afforded by a visit to his late parishes in Carroll county, to obtain from the records the foregoing statistics. He resigned the parishes in November last, upon ac. cepting, by advice of the Bishop, an invitation to another part of the diocese. At the time he left there was every assurance that the vacancy would immediately be filled--a clergyman having already accepted an invitation to take charge of the parishes. He, however, failed to do so, and the parishes have up to this time been unsuccessful in the efforts they have been constantly making to obtain a pastor. The parishes have had the services of a clergyman only about four months during the past year. The people, however, have during their sad destitution been doing what they could to sustain the Church-and their late rector cannot but express the great pleasure he has experienced in witnessing the noble spirit and zeal for the Church that now animates those little flocks. He most earnestly hopes and prays that they may soon be blessed with the holy ministrations of the Church to which in their bereavement they so warmly cling.
