"He was next appointed to a large church in the city of Manchester. Here he inherited dif ficulties growing out of discordant conditions in the congregation, which resulted during his first year in several church trials. By a wise course of personal conduct, however, by a firm and calm adherence to his Christian convic tions, and by zealous fidelity to his ministerial duties in pulpit and parish, he won favor from the people, and the purification and restoration of his church. It was within this period that consumption was quite generally supposed to be doing its fatal work with the pastor. His presiding elder besought him, with all gentleness, to go home that he might receive the attention which only a mother's love could bestow upon "a sick and dying son." The young pastor declined to follow this advice, and further determined not to die. This same presiding elder and Dr. Buckley, both members, greeted each other in the General Conference which met in the city of Brooklyn, in 1872." (from J. M. Buckley's biography by George Mains)
