Notes from Aqueduct

New York, 1895

The trustees of the M. P. Church are making arrangements for repairing and painting the church inside and outside.

The Rev. Gilbert Coombs, of Inwood, preached a very able sermon on Sunday which was much appreciated.

The Rev. William E. Blandy, pastor of the M. P. Church, will deliver a lecture Sunday evening. Subject, "Broken Crockery and Its Lessons," in the Centreville avenue church.

Rust & Glazebrook's hotel, with its rooms and all improvements, and a grain hay, feed and grocery store, will be opened on the first of May. Great praise is due to Elisha Smith, architect and builder, for the elegant appearance of the work.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, April 26, 1895, p. 8.
