ence, two years and the Thomasville Charge, two years. In 1872
he was transferred to the Northwest Texas Conference. Here
he served Calvert two years; Marlin two years; Waxahachie
Station, two years; Waxahachie District (and College, I suppose),
four years, and then located. Returning to the Conference in
1893, he spent one year at Couts Memorial; four years at Brown-
wood; one year at Dublin, three years at Abilene and three years
at Main Street in Cleburne. In 1905 he was appointed agent for
Superannuate Homes, and was reappointed from year to year to
this agency to the close of his life. In this office, he did a monu-
mental work, and many rise up and call him blessed, and will
do so forever. He loved the old men of the Conference and
many a time did he exhort the brethren to remember these hon-
ored, useful servants of the Lord who had made possible the
great blessings and privileges they are enjoying.
In the summer Brother Brown found it necessary to go to
the Baptist Sanitarium at Dallas for treatment. While here,
came the end, which was not the end, but the beginning of an
everlasting triumph. He was rational to the last. Just before
his departure he repeated the Apostles' Creed, and, looking up
into the face of a dear friend, said, "I believe it all. The way is
clear. Nothing of that kind to worry about. That is settled."
At another time he sang, and said, "I am coming! Coming! I love
Him, because He first loved me." With his last whisper he
said "Halleluiah7 I love Him" He then closed his eyes on the
fading beauties of earth to open them on the fadeless glories
He died in the Sanitarium at Dallas, October 20, 1913. The
next day funeral services were held in the home of his daughter,
and his precious dust was deposited in the Greenwood cemetery
to await "the resurrection of the just."
