[Obituary of John Lomas]
James Sykes, Leek
Education, Utility, Infidelity, Piety
Observes of this middle-class local preacher and class-leader: 'His ardent mind, expecially when engaged in withstanding the profane and ungodly, frequently exposed him to their insolence and resentment; but he overcame evil with good. Having much leisure, Mr. L. had acquired a variety of useful knowledge; and this he employed for the benefit of the public; which in that retired part of the country rendered him of great value' (412).
