Afterwards he labored successively two years at Ryde, fifteen years at Leeds, six years at Manchester, and finally four years at Forest Hill, a London suburb, where he died, November 8, 1874. Mr. Conder exerted a powerful influence as pastor, openair preacher, and lecturer; was a public-spirited townsman, an earnest advocate of education, and a nervous and pithy writer of some charming articles for the young. He was also the composer of a few notable hymns. See (Lond.) Cong. Year- book, 1875, page 317; (Lond.) Evang. Mag. 1875, page 95.
