An Earnest Pastorate

Excerpt from An Earnest Pastorate: Memorials of the Rev. Alexander Leitch, M.A., Minister of the South Church, Stirling

From one to half-past two o'clock on the afternoon of Thursday, the 23d day of April 1868, the town of Stirling appeared as it usually does on a Fast-day or a Sabbath. The shops were shut, and all business was suspended, the streets were full of people, whose aspect indicated the pressure of some common sorrow, and the tolling of the town bells at intervals intensified the feeling of solemnity which was abroad.

It was the funeral day of the Rev. Alexander Leitch, minister of the South Free Church - a man who never delivered one set speech in the General Assembly, who contributed nothing to the literature of his country, with whose very name, it is possible, many of his own brethren were little familiar, but who, by a long life of single-minded devotion to the glory of God and the highest good of his fellow men, had made such an impression upon the community in which he lived, that it was now mourning his death as if it had been a public calamity.
