"In 1897 the Rev. Dr. Stealy B. Rossiter, the pastor of the North Presbyterian church of New York City, an esteemed, active and influential member of the Presbytery of that city, a most useful and successful minister, came to Paris in exchange with the pastor. He was with you for the months of June, July and August. Dr. and Mrs. Rossiter extended their hospitality at No 59 rue Galilée on Wednesdays and at once won their way to the regard of the people. Dr. Rossiter became conversant with the conditions of the religious life in France and afterward gave the benefit of his knowledge and experience to the friends of French evangelization in America. He is now pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Manila, Philippine Islands. The North Church in New York was a center of large and busy activities and the cordiality and kindness of the people greatly assisted your pastor in the work he would do.
