The presentation was made by the Rector (the Rev F W Carnegy) who referred in warm terms to the excellent services Captain Impey has rendered during the course of his stay in Led- bury. Mr F W Wade, who supported the Rector, also spoke, and Captain Impey, in accepting the gifts, expressed his heartfelt thinks to the subscribers for their kindness.

He trusted they would extend to his successor, Captain Nash, who would commence his duties on Sunday, the same kindness as they had ex- tended to him.—The presentation originated from a small committee of the Church Room, and was arranged by the men who had attended the services in the Church Room to assist Captaim Impey, Mr A Moss and Mr M Smith acting as hon secretaries.—The address read as follows ;—" Presented to Captain Impey, together with a fitted dressing case as a token of appreciation of his services during his two years' mission work in Ledbury and District.
