? - 1917
|The Rev. T. H. Morris was transferred to the Louisiana Conference in December, 1911, and appointed to Mansfield charge, where he rendered efficient service during a quadrennium. During the closing months of this pastorate he had a serious attack of illness, but seeming to have regained his health, he was appointed to service in the Monroe charge during the year 1916. The heavy work of this important charge proved a greater strain than he could endure and he began to decline in health, though he worked laboriously throughout the year and made an excellent report to the Conference.
One year ago, he was appointed to Arcadia, in the hope that! he might serve a lighter charge, but soon suffered a complete collapse in health and had to be relieved of his work. Medical skill produced only temporary results and a few weeks ago he passed away at the home of relatives in Dallas, Texas.
Brother Morris was a very painstaking and consecrated workman, diligent in his Master's business. He was a faithful Shepherd, with deep human sympathies, following in the footsteps of his Master who went about doing good, and without doubt has now entered upon a rich eternal reward.
