Notes on the Geography of Uruguay: Uruguay Cemeteries: Photo 28
The Mulhalls in their Handbook of the River Plate add some details about John Conder: "The view of the river Uruguay from any of the hills in and around Fray Bentos is exceedingly pretty. The shops here are very good, and commodities of all kinds kept in supply. There are nearly 100 English residents.... There is an English chapel with an excellent parsonage, originally built for a college; here resides the Rev. John Conder, LL.D. (Late Rector of Wendy, Cambs), who has also the supervision of the English congregations through Bando Oriental (Montevideo excepted), and to him application should be made when the services of the Church are required. The Protestants possess a cemetery well laid out and kept, the gift of Mr. James Lowry of Montevideo" (1885 ed., pp. 607-08; odd that Conder died the same year he appeared in the pages of the Handbook).
