The Alloa Advertiser of 27 Oct 1900 carries quite a long article on his induction to Erskine U.P. (as it was then) church. 

Other newspaper articles show he was previously at Wormit UP church until about 1897, assistant to Rev Dr Corbett at Camphill UP church(Glasgow), and in locum tenens at Partick UP church in 1899 during the minister's absence, before becoming minister of Erskine church, Clackmannan.
