REMINISCENCES

BY C. A. LAMB.
Written June, 1874

My first care was to find where I could spend the Lord's day, in obedience to the great commission received from the Master Jesus, and the commission I had received from the Board of the New York Baptist State Convention, an appointment was got up for me at the little village of Franklin. Here I spent my first Lord's day. My time was occupied for a season in getting my little family properly settled. My second Lord's day was spent at Pontiac. I preached in the log court-house, and was agreeably surprised to see come in among my hearers one of my good deacons, and another prominent brother, with their wives, from the church which I had so lately left in New York. After they had made us a very pleasant visit, they went on their way and left me to await the new experiences which I was destined to realize in an entire new field. I learned from one of the members who resided in Franklin that there was a church in Farmington which had no minister. I also learned that there were but two settled ordained ministers in the territory—Elder Comstock, of Pontiac, and Elder Moses Clark, who lived on the Huron, between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Both had ministered to the church in Farmington. But an alienation had sprung up, occasioned by the breaking out of the anti-Masonic excitement. Elder Clark was extremely radical, and Elder Comstock was conservative; or in other words, did not feel it his duty to carry matters to extremes.
