The instrument dedicated last evening is a two manual pipe organ built on the tubular pneumatic type of action with the specification as appears below. It was built by the famous Estey Organ Co., of Brattleboro, Vt., under contract made last May through its representative, Clarence E. Briggs of the Boston office. It occupies the choir loft at the left of the pulpit platform, presenting a beautiful and stately appearance with its paneled case of richly finished black walnut surmounted by 33 large metal pipes in gilt bronze that stretch across the entire front of the loft. It is supplied with the latest in devices in organ equipment. The contract price was $6,300 and a check for that amount was handed to the erector, Mr. Brennan, on the acceptance of the organ by the committee.
