Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-25-10  myschkin: . . .

Curate-in-charge at Shade Wesleyan Methodist Church (in West Yorkshire).

In December 1908, he left for Couva, Trinidad.


Tranquility Methodist Church

Tranquility Methodist Church is located on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Tragarete Road in Port of Spain. This church is part of the National Trust of historic buildings. In 1796 the first Methodists came to Trinidad as Wesleyan missionaries. They established a church in Port of Spain using rented premises. The church members however wanted a building of their own and so in 1870 they acquired the land on which the church presently sits. After much saving the foundation stone of the church was laid in 1886 with the church being completed in April 1886. Then in January 1906, cornerstone of the present building was laid. This church has survived an earthquake in 1954 and a fire in 1984 and continues to be a place of comfort for the weary soul.

Jan-03-11  TheFocus: Can I get an AMEN? bless you Jesus!
Jan-03-11  Dredge Rivers: Personally, I believe in seperation of Church and Chess!
Jul-01-18  Nosnibor: The first two games listed were not played by this player but by a Dublin born player with the same initials. This is confirmed by Duffy in the "Illustrated London News", 6 November 1886. In any case if one was to look at the bio this Palmer would barely be 13 years of age !

  MissScarlett: Blackburne played another Palmer, in a blindfold simul in Norwich in 1862. Thankfully, that was <W T Palmer>.

Incidentally, old man, the correction process does not work by osmosis. They must be submitted. Just leave it with me.

Jul-06-18  Nosnibor: <MissScarlett .A similar problem as occurred in connection with Ronald Cadell MacDonald which I have pointed out.I find the errors and you appear to be the magnificent "fixer".
Jul-06-18  zanzibar: Personally, I strongly believe in posting the corrections in the discussion stream - in order to guarantee an open-access documentation trail.

In fact, why not just combine the functions with a

<@correction> tag leader,

similar to a,

<@submit> tag leader?
