John Dunmore Lang, D.D., M.A. INCIDENTS IN HIS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 February 1915
John Dunmore Lang, D.D., M.A. INCIDENTS IN HIS LIFE. S [BY Joua GALE.] Mb personal acquaintance with the late Dr. Lang was limited to the occasion of a pastoral visitation to the Pres byterian Churches in the southern dis tricts of New South Wales. It was many years ago, and not long before the decease of that eminent man. I had the honour of entertaining him during his stay in Qaeanbeyan, and was delighted with him as a guest. He never tired of recounting his ex periences-as a minister of the Gospel, as a politician, and as a.pioneer colon ist; Dr. Lang's clerical duties took him on as far as to Cooma, and it was my privi. lege and pleasure to drive him there and back to Queanbeyan in my buggy and pair. The distance from Quean beyan to Cooma by road is 72 miles. My-horses were equal to the journey, but I entertained doubts as to the ability of the venerable doctor to stand the fatigue of so long a journey in one I day. It was the hot season of the year, and travelling was tedious a...
