Robert Hodge, ‘The Church's Holy War: News from the Battlefield’ in Church Army gazette

“Middlesbrough, St.Paul’s. - A Service of Song, entitled 'Lost Gyp,' was given in the Farrer Street Mission Room on Feb. 28 by the Rev. P. L’Argent Bell, and his choir from Trafalgar Street Mission, Thornaby. They very kindly brought with them a splendid magic lantern, the pictures giving great enjoyment to the large audience. The service was very much liked, and we hope that the lessons of the touching story went home to many hearts that night. C.H.S. for Capt. A.E. Paskin”
