Methodist Chapel, Maryport, during the last six weeks and attracting very
large audiences of all denominations of Christians, is, we understand about to
leave Maryport for another engagement elsewhere.
Such is her untiring zeal that during her sojourn here she had a
meeting every night and two on Sunday. She is no sectarian, but is willing to
minister at any church where she may be called to do her Master’s work. This
cosmopolitan principle has gained hera host of friends, who by spontaneous
feeling subscribed and purchased for her a beautiful gold watch as a testimonial of
their appreciation of her services.
About a dozen of the principal subscribers met on Wednesday night at
Mr. Joseph KENDALL’s, where Miss. INMAN has been staying. Mr. ADAIR, acting on
behalf of the committee and other subscribers, after a few complimentary
observations, presented the young lady with the watch and jet guard.
Miss. INMAN in her modest and unobtrusive manner received the gift,
adding that such a mark of kindness from comparative strangers was quite
unexpected, and would be remembered with a feeling of gratitude, and would prove a
pleasing momento of her visit to Maryport where she had made so many friends.
This mark of their approval, she said, would stimulate her to greater
exertions in the path which she had chosen. She again thanked them heartily for
their beautiful present, assuring them that she would treasure it to the latest
hour of her life, not so much for its intrinsic value, but as embodying the
good wishes and kind feeling of her Maryport friends.
Several other members of the committee spoke in a complimentary strain
of Miss. INMAN’s peculiar talents. After excellent speeches by Messrs. J.
CAMPBELL, J. ROSS, I. MOSSOP, J. KENDALL, and others a pleasant evening was
spent in songs and hymns by Miss. INMAN, who never seemed exhausted.
The watch, which was supplied by Miss. WALKER, Senhouse-street, is of
the best description. The inner case is beautifully engraved with the
following inscription: -
“Presented to Miss. INMAN by a few Maryport friends, in appreciation of
her mission services.”
