Dr. Woodbridge, gave much encourage? ment to the object, and the C? . . or" Mon? umental Church, composed of nearly all of the male members of the congrega? tion, succeeded in securing the lot and the old wooden building thereon, .-.ituated at the corner of Grace and Aladison streets, and with the full approval rr>.l co-operation of the Vestry' ?f Alonumental Church, the property was purchased and the old building was internally arranged to be used as a chapel. ,'.nd se?*vices were held therein, principally rt ntght, for a number of years, till the late Ligne Rev.
