Mr. Winship was of a friendly nature and well liked by all. He was a most patient sufferer, never once during his long period of illness did he complain, but looked upon his suffering and approaching death as the will of the Lord. He had no fear of death as the Lord had given him time to confess his Saviour. After his operation he was baptized by Rev. Siqueland of Glasgow and remained strong in faith till the last.
