His after appointments were 1868, Westport and Arrowsic as supply; then in succession, Bremen and Round Pound, Clinton and Benton, and in 1873, Woolwich. Loss of health necessitated his being placed on the supernumerary list in 1874, where he continued to the close of his life. He resumed preaching in 1878 at China, Maine, labored one year, and was again prostrated by sickness. He died in that town, June 23, 1879. Mr. Bray was a devoted Gospel preacher.
