"A Call from the Congregation of Miller's Run to Mr. Andrew Wylie" [Holograph Document Signed Inviting Andrew Wylie to be the Pastor of the Congregation of Miller's Run, Pennsylvania in 1813]
1813. Good. Unbound. Single folio leaf of laid paper. Measuring 12.75" x 7.75", with writing occupying the upper portion of the sheet. Old folds with small tears and creases at the corners, good or better. An appeal made to Wylie, in the year that he was ordained as a Presbyterian Minister. Signed by five people: William Brice, James Irwin, Alex Mcelroy, George Bess[?], and Joseph Kerr[?], dated on the 29th of March in 1813. Miller's Run Presbyterian Church, in the borough of McDonald, in Washington County, Pennsylvania, was one of the pioneer Presbyterian churches in western Pennsylvania, about four miles from Canonsburg, where Wylie was consecrated. The church and the adjacent cemetery still exist but services were discontinued in 1903. Wylie served as pastor from 1813-1817, serving simultaneously as president of Jefferson College, before going on to become the first president of Indiana College (now Indiana University) in 1829.
