But look at their ex- C o u ldn’t measure The New Y o r k Tim es publishes the follow in g letter o f appreciation o f the services rendered by Dr. Duffield. pastor em eritus o f the Old First Church o f Fifth A v e. and Tw e lfth street, New Y o r k , o f which he has been the pastor fo r sereval years. A t the conclusion o f the evening service o f the Old First Presbyterian Church, F ifth Avenue and Tw e lfth street, Sunday, June 2, the Rev. H ow­ ard Duffield, D. D., ceased to be its pastor. The severing o f the pastoral relation was precipitated by the re­ cent consolidation with the Madison Square and U n iversity Place Presby­ terian churches, o f N e w York. It is not the w riter’s desire to dis­ cuss in any w a y this consolidation, which has long been public inform a ­ tion through press statem ents, but rather from the point o f view o f a personal friendship o f three or fou r decades, to m a g n ify Dr. Duffield’s connection with the Old First, whose corporate title will never be destroy­ ed, but perpetuated to m em orialize a history which is influential, even as that o f the city. Its record is known to all w h o are fam iliar with it, since its establish­ m ent in W a ll Street, but the people at large are not acquainted w ith the achievem e n ts o f Dr. Duffield, whose wise leadership m ade the consolida­ tion a possibility, which was sug­ gested by others. M ore than tw e n ty-five years ago it was my privilege to visit Dr. Duffield, w h o was then pastor o f the W e stm in­ ster Presbyterian Church in Detroit, M ich., and, as a representative o f the Old First, to solicit and secure his a c ceptance o f a call to the pastorate o f the N ew Y o r k church. W ith a fu ll realization o f the pos­ sibilities as w ell as the responsibil­ ities and difficulties involved in that acceptance, but nothing daunted, he cam e to N e w Y o r k and applied his rare g i f t s as an organizer and leader to develop an institution (even down­ tow n ) which has since proved a pow­ er in the m etropolis. M aterial im p rovem e n ts have been made t6 beau tify the interior o f this p e r fect G o thic edifice. M em orial stained glass w indow s have been in­ stalled throughout. A lamp o f rare beauty has been suspended from the ceiling over the pulpit, and an im p os­ in g artistic reredos was only recent­ ly dedicated as the g i f t o f the mem ­ bers o f the congregation. M osaic flooring has been substituted fo r car­ pet covered, and electric lighting fo r som b re gas jets. Single handed, a f t e r years o f earn­ est effort, Dr. Duffield obtained from prom inent citizens an endow m e n t fu n d o f $500,000 perm a n e n tly to maintain the activities o f the church. In addition to these, and other evi­ dences o f a devoted zeal, societies and organizations w e re created to atm o sphere the church with spiritual energy, which has radiated through­ out the' neighborhood. The m u sic o f the Old First has al­ w a y s appealed to the people, and fo r this Dr. Duffield’s w isdom was also responsible, fo r in the early days o f his pastorate he selected as the organ­ ist and choirm a s ter W illiam C. Carl, who has since been awarded the de­ gree o f D o c t o r o f M usic, and whose reputation as a skilled artist is w o rld­ wide. Dr. C a r l’s consistent devotion and loyalty to Dr. Duffield has made the organ an invaluable ally o f the pulpit. Dr. Duffield’s vigorous mental ability as a clear, logical and convinc­ ing preacher never was greater. As an eloquent speaker out o f the pul­ pit, his present influence w a s never m o re far-reaching. A s his frien d , not a m e m b e r o f the Old F irst, (be­ cause o f m any years’ change o f resi­ d e n c e ) , I salute him and bid him god­ speed. Charles M. Jessup, W h ite Plains; N.
