1888 - Lutheran Church's reponse to article of June 6th.

To the Editor of the S. B. and A. Journal.
Sir--My attention having been directed to a paragraph in your issue of the 6th inst., in regard to Mrs. Hillbrick's funeral, allow me to state you have been misinformed in the matter. So far from the English friends of. the family of the deceased lady who attended her funeral having been disrespectfully ignored, the Church of England Minister of Berwick was expressly requested to attend and perform part of the ceremony in English. He was unfortunately unable to attend. It is true that the suggested ministrations by the representative of the so-called "Disciples" were declined. But I need not defend the Lutheran Church or myself against the absurd accusation of bigotry in connection therewith. That sect's well known dealings with, and position towards, all the other Christian churches are defence enough. Thanking you for inserting this correction, I am, yours respectfully,
Lutheran Parsonage, East Melbourne, 11th June.
