John Scott, M.A. eighteen years minister of this parish, who died October 16, 1834, aged 47 years, and is interred within the communionrails. His high endowments were devoted to the great object of making full proof of his ministry. Mighty in the Scriptures,' he declared the whole council of God' with singular judgment, energy, and simplicity. As he preached he livedand as he lived he died. To perpetuate the remembrance of the fervent piety of their pastor and friend, an affectionate congregation have erected this monument." The sculptor is Mr. T.
