Bottom Row: THE MEETIN! HOUSE.

In the old church yard in the days gone by
B'side the village green where was sung the lullaby,
Stood the old-timed, old fashion meeting-house,
Close to the high-way, on you knoll:where fairies c'rouse.
On week-day seldom the bell chim'd forth the call
To the busy throng bent on what should come to all,
But on the first day rang out “Give praise to God,'.
When the pious folk gave heed with rev'rent nod.
Full many came in groups, and in single file,
In buggies, wagons, sleighs, carts, some walk'd a mile;
They were good old fashionid people, of plain dress,
They lived in peace, for wrongs they sought no redress.
Within the meetin' house supreme order reign'd,
The fair sex sat by themselves, the men obtain'd
Places opposite, while children fill'd in between,
Nothing was surer th:an good will and nothing mean.
The pastor was an example to his flock,
His ev'ry mien was pious, his coat a frock;
His necktie was white in keeping with his life,
And between him and his flock there was no strife.
His preaching received attention by the truth he voiced,
Even children hung on his lips and rejoiced;
His exhortations fired his soul with fervor,
And his tears drew like tears from one another.
The Bible was all to him and his text-book,
He read, expounded, and applied with earn'st look;
The doctrines of heav'n and hell he preach'd with fervor,
Nor saints, nor sinners were ever pass'd over.
There was singing that rang out upon the air,
No precentor, nor choir, but voices clear and fair,
And when the doxology was sung by all,
'Twas like from many voices a clarion call.

D. A. PERRIN. Normal, ill., March 3, 1909.

Generations of the Perrin Family

Biographical Sketch of Mary Ann Peat Perrin

Mary Ann Peat Perrin was the daughter of Arnold Peat Esq., who lived two miles from Mt. Pleasant, Ont., born in Batavia, N. Y., 1801. Married Col. Thomas Perrin. Sr., 1823 at Mt. Pleasant, Ont. Mother of seven children, David, Caroline, Eliza Jane, Andrew, Mary Ann (Minnie) William, Daniel A., 1839 moved with her husband Col. Thos. Perrin, and family to Mt. Vernon, Ont. She was noted for her charities to the poor, love to her neighbors. Usefulness in visiting the sick. She was respected by all who knew her, she was a model housekeeper, and Christian mother. She was a devoted member of the Wesleyan Methodist church, and her home was always open to the itinerant minister. For these godly men it was a resting place as well as a home for them. My earliest recollection was that of Methodist ministers sharing the hospitalities of my father's home. She died as she lived at Mt. Vernon, Ont., Jan. 10th, 1860, peacefully resting on the bosom of Jesus. Rev. Ashael Hurlburt, pastor of the Methodist church, preached her funeral sermon Jan. 12th, 1860, from 1 Thess, 4th Chapter 13 and 14 verses:

“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others, which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.”

A large concourse of people and acquaintances mourned for the loss of one whom they had learned to love and reverence. Her body was interred in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery, and a monument was erected to her memory by her husband Col. Thomas Perrin. Among the scripture quotations she oft repeated are:

"As thy days so shall thy strength be”; “When Thou passeth through the waters I will be with Thee and the fioods shall not overflow thee”; I "will never leave thee nor forsake Thee."

Among the favorite verses she was accustomed to repeat was:

Jesus can make the dying bed
Feel soft as downy pillows are
While on His breast I lay my head
And breathe my life out sweetly there."
“Jesus lover of my soul
Let me to thy bosom fly
While the nearer waters roll
While the temptest still is high,
Hide me O my Saviour hide
Till the storm of life is past
Safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last.”

Other refuge have I none
Hangs my helpless soul on thee;
Leave, o leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me:
All my trust on thee is stayed,
All my help from thee I bring:
Cover my defenseless head,
With the shadows of thy wing."
