Dr. Albert Peel was a considerable literary figure in Congregational

circles. Though he was a preacher of marked distinction he will be best remembered for his editorship of the Congregational Quarterly, which he founded in 5922 on retiring from his conspicuously suc- cessful pastorate at Clapton Park Congregational Church. He wrote with great, perhaps sometimes too great, facility, and had the supreme virtue of never being dull. Many articles from his pen have appeared in this journal. He was Chairman of the Congregational Union in 5940. * * * *
