It is an interesting fact worthy of being remembered, that the first item of busi ness which came before Donegal Presbytery, was from the congregations of Paxton and Derry. From the minutes of October 11th 1732, we read: This day appeared George Renick and others from Paxton and Derry, requiring an answer to their call, given to the Rev. Mr. Bertram, at Philadelphia, when the Presbytery of New Castle met, producing their subscriptions to his support, which subscriptions were attested by Mr. Anderson. Whereupon Presbytery, asking Mr. Bertram, if he had considered said call, and requiring his answer in relation thereunto, he declared his acceptance thereof, and. That he would take the people's subscriptions, Without any other obligation, for his support.
On Wednesday, the 15th of November, 1732, Donegal Presbytery met at Swatara according to appointment to install Mr. Bertram pastor of Paxton and Derry. Mr. Anderson had by appointment notified the congregations some time previously, and no objection was made to the installation. Mr. Thomson presided and preached the sermon.
