Went to the Presbyterians, 1921

From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), October 6, 1921, page 1:

Pastor Quit the Job.
Rev. A. C. Bostwick, who was sent to Barnard as pastor of the M. E. Church by the conference which met at Brookfield a week ago came to Barnard and preached a very forceful sermon Sunday. He left the first of the week to see about transferring his household goods from his former charge in Breckenridge to this place and was expected here the last of the week.

Wednesday, F. H. Badger, secretary of the official board of the M. E. Church here received a letter from Rev. Ernest Snider of St. Joseph, district superintendent of the conference, as follows: “The man whom Bishop Quayle sent to your station went to the Presbyterians. I will send a man as soon as I can get one.”

Henry Stalling, chairman of the board, said he did not know anything about the affair and that it left the church in a bad fix. F. H. Badger said: “I don’t know what to make of it.” Badger attended the annual conference as a lay delegate. — Barnard Bulletin.
