THE DUNDEE ADVERTISER, THURSDAY, JULY 4, 1867
UNITED PRESBYTERIAN PRESBYTERY
In consequence of the feeble state of the health of the Rev John More, of Cairneyhill, the Presbytery appointed Mr Russell, Dunfermline, to dispense the Lord’s Supper at Cairneyhill on the following sacrament.
Mr Borland, who has accepted the call presented him by the Cairneyhill congregation to be colleague and successor to the Rev Mr More, appeared before the Presbytery, and delivered his trial discourses, to the satisfaction of all the members of Presbytery.
Some discussion took place as to the time of ordination, but ultimately it was agreed that it should take place on the Wednesday before the last Sabbath in July. Dr Johnstone was appointed to ordain, and Mr Welsh, Kincardine, to preach. The Presbytery then adjourned, to meet at Cairneyhill on Wednesday the 24th July.
