Excerpt from General Assembly Prayers, 1917
With considerable reluctance, but at the request of many who were members of the General Assembly of 1917, or who were present at the joint Intercessory Service in the Assembly Hall of the United Free Church, I have consented to publish these Devotional Exercises and also my Speech in reply to the Address of the Lord High Commissioner (his Grace the Duke of Montrose, which was delivered on the Opening Day of the Assembly. My Closing Address has already been published in pamphlet form by Messrs. Wm. Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh.
For about thirty years there has been, by appointment of the Assembly at its first session, a Celebration of Holy Communion in S. Giles' Cathedral, on the morning of its second day of meeting. The present Order was drawn up, I believe, by the late Dr. A. K. H. Boyd, Moderator in 1890, with the advice of the late Dr. Thomas Leishman, Moderator in 1898, and the late Dr. G. W. Sprott. Since 1898 it has been used with scarcely a modification and with general acceptance, and I print it here as exhibiting a type of Communion Order fairly general among us, and possessing all the sanction which use at the Assembly celebration can give to it.
