Shortly for Oshawa
About 40 of the members of
the Missionary Society of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church held a
picnic in the grove near the Jamieson house last Thursday
afternoon and presented Mrs. Jamieson, who is leaving shortly of
Oshawa as superintendent of a home for the children of
missionaries in the foreign field, with a three-piece silver tea
service and a handsome reflector. Miss Jamieson of Toronto, who
was present for the occasion, was also presented with a half dozen
Miss Clara Hoag, who for a
number of years has been in the law office of Colonel T. R.
Atkinson, and is leaving as assistant to Mrs. Jamieson, was the
guest of honour on the lawn of Mrs. Richard Edmonds and Mrs. J. H.
McKnight, where the Mission Circle assembled last Thursday
afternoon to bid farewell to Miss Hoag, who has been an active
member of the circle, and to present her with a set of French
ivory toilet articles.
Mrs. Gordon Small is
another estimable young woman who will be greatly missed by a
large circle of friends. Mrs. Small is taking over the duties as
housekeeper for the institution, and previous to the loss of her
husband, who was killed in action last year, was an enthusiastic
golfer and her departure from town will be a loss to the ladies
section of the Norfolk Golf and Country Club. Here many associates
join in wishing for her a bright and prosperous future.
