Rev. William Armitage Beardslee has been compelled by his long illness to resign his ministry in the Presbyterian Church at Saranac Lake, NY. He will go to the home of his father, Rev. Dr. Beardslee, at Holland, Mich., for the present and if his health permits will spend the winter in the far South.
