MASON, Mr   (fl. 1890s) – lecturer


“Women must work. Maidstone, Holy Trinity. – Nurse Rollason’s Thursday night Meeting, was re-opened on Thursday, the 15th, by a kindly-provided Tea in the Trinity Schoolroom, to which 160 sat down. After tea a Magic Lantern Service was held by Mr. Mason, who explained both the Social and Women’s work of the C.A. Our good Vicar did all he is ever ready to do, and the Rev. Barltop kindly prisided at the piano. We trust that the Meeting will increase, and that Nurse Rollason may be blessed in her work, and many brought to the Saviour. She has already won the hearts of many people here. Our small Gazette Brigade joined in the Festivities. ”
