A Letter recommending Andrew Adam as Precentor

It is transcribed below.

18 King Street
Paisley 18th August, 1867.

I have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the musical abilities of Mr Andrew Adam. He is possessor of a First Class Tenor Voice, reads music fluently, and is in every way qualified both to lead and teach a Congregation the Theory and practice of Music. I have no hesitation in saying that with a little practice he should be one of the leading Precentors in the West, judging from his Natural abilities.

I am, Gentlemen,
Yours Respectfully,
John Lang.
Precentor in the U P Church, Paisley, and Teacher of Harmony and Counterpoint in the Artizans' Institute.
