He then went to Canada, where he labored for thirteen years in Toronto and for five years at Montreal. Amongs his co-religionists he was a prominent, member, and was the first president of the Canadian synod. He also edited for a long time the paper of his denomination, and as president of the Missionary Board he cared for his countrymen with word and sacrament.
