    I have a copy of Rev. Elder's response to Mr. McBride that I received while in Belfast in 2005. The old English makes for interesting reading, as does the topic! Since the Rev. John Elder of Aghadowey is my 5th great-grandfather it was of special interest to me, he seems like a pretty fiery fellow, not unlike what I have read about the Rev. John Elder of Paxtang!
