Updated through online information from T. Bradford Willis, DDS. -- An article in the Waco Evening News on June 27, 1894 states, "The organ recital at St. Paul's Episcopal church last night was largely attended, and very much enjoyed. The instrument had been thoroughly tuned and Mr. Jardine tested each register, showing the power and compass of the instrument. It has a remarkably fine tone, and is an ornament to the church."
