St. James Church
Feb. 5, 1905
Yesterday was an auspicious day for St.
James church of Texarkana. For the past nine months the church has
been closed on account of the parish being without a rector, but the vestry
recently called the Rev. Henry Knott, of Chicago, and he was installed as
rector by Bishop Garrett at the morning service yesterday. The faithful
parishioners and many visitors from other denominations thronged the church
and taxed its seating capacity. The office of institution was read
by the venerable bishop, who is greatly beloved here and over the entire
diocese. Rev. Mr. Knott conducted the remainder of the service, all
of which was very impressive. Mr. Knott is a comparatively young man.
He has a strong sympathetic voice and his earnestness makes the services
unusually impressive. Texarkana paper
