Captain Pott's Minister

by Francis Le Roy Cooper

Old Captain Pott is not much pleased when the church committee decides that the new minister, Mack McGowan, is to live in his house, but the plan proves to be a good one in the long run. Elder Fox, who has a mysterious dislike for the young minister, tries to influence Captain Pott to drive him from the town but the trusty captain will not be persuaded. Instead, he uncovers the true cause of the antagonism to McGowan and the mystery of which he is the unconscious center. Fox, confronted with his Australian past, decides to make amends. The story has its love-interest in the romance of Fox's daughter, Beth, and the young minister and its humor in the affair between the captain and Miss Clemmie Pipkin.
