WAM resigns (June 30). Not a few influential Parishioners appealed to him to stay. He promised to pray and think about the matter but presently informed the Vestry that his decision was final. The “Valedictory Sermon” was written for children and preached at an evening service in the new church. WAM visits Europe to study high-caliber faith-based schools. He returns to Long Island as Rector of Flushing.
