Marty said ...

"The Late George Adam, of Stranraer, Wigtownshire, Scotland.  OUR beloved brother and fellow-helper in the Lord, Mr. George Adam, fell asleep in Jesus on 28th March 1907 aged 77 years and 10 months.  He was a faithful servant of Christ, ministering both by lip and pen to the children of God for many years.  His early testimony was among those who received blessing through Donald Ross of Aberdeen; after a time, he removed to Edinburgh, where he resided for some years, exercising his gift as pastor and teacher among the saints.  His next move was to Prestwick, and after some years there, he was led to make Stranraer his head- quarters.  There and in the district round about, he faithfully stood for the truth, but especially of late years he was invited to many conferences, and his matured judgment and spiritual grasp of the Scriptures made his presence to be valued. Amongst other places, he used to be at Leominster, Lurgan, Whitehaven, and Paisley and Glasgow half-yearly meetings, and his sober conscience-searching ministry had a value peculiarly its own.  Our readers will remember his many contributions to the pages of "The Witness," always sound and wholesome.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  Since leaving Edinburgh many years ago, he had no private means of support, but looked alone to the Lord, to whose unfailing care and faithfulness he bore an unwavering testimony to the last.  He is survived by his wife, who entered with faithful and intelligent sympathy into all his service.  We commend her in her deep sorrow to the prayers and fellowship of saints.
