The Rev R Cleghorn Thomson, Ladyburn Parish Church, Greenock, was last night elected to the pastorship at Wallacetown Parish Church, Dundee, in succession of the Rev JS Robertson who transferred to Montrose. Voting took place yesterday, and the only name before the congregation was that of Mr Thomson. A native of Uddingston, he graduated at Glasgow University in 1906. He takes a special interest in the young and his Sabbath school is the largest in the Greenock Presbytery.
