In it he mentions two churches still under construction in 1860. One was the Cantonment Church (also known as St. Paul's Church) and the other was the Chapel in the Civil Lines (also known as St. Joseph's). These two churches also were still under construction when they were blessed by the Bishop. In the book, he also mentions that the Assembly of God's Church was built by the government and was a part of Diocese of Lucknow and follows Roman Rite.
