600 Added Members, Not Bad, Granddad

Forgive the irreverence. The Library of Congress has some newish software for their Chronicling America resources.  Searched for William R Harshaw and got a notice of his departure from NYC to West Pittston.  It notes he had added 600 members to the First Union church during his pastorate.  Apparently the strain of the East Side was too much.  You can read the article, paragraph rather, which is in the second column middle of the page by drawing the "zoom box" around it.  Haven't seen a way to link to the zoomed text directly.
