The Board of Trustees of the First Methodist Episcopal church of Ann Arbor desire to place on record their sense of the great loss they have sustained in the death of Professor Alexander Winchell, who has been for two years their honored and efficiƫnt president. He has been summoned by the Master he had served so long and well from among the struggles and labors of this life to enjoy the reward which is reserved for such long and faithful service in a world where struggles and labors are unknown. In him the church of Ann Arbor has lost a wise counsellor, a devoted friend, the universal church a wellequipped and valiant soldier, religious truth an ardent and powerful defender, and the Giver of all truth a humble and willing follower. But though he is dead, yet does he live, his works do follow him. In the lives and hearts of those who have Deen moved by his example and precepts, eloquent witnesses are still testifying to the value of the truths he taught, and long after that body, which was but the decaying abode of an immortal spirit, has returoed to its dust, the spirit itself which dwelt there will live and work as in this mortal life, for God and His truth.
