One has passed away whose character was that of a good man. Honest in all his dealings, conscientious in the discharge of duty, unswerving in his adherence to what he believed to be right, he was, therefore, greatly valued by all who knew him. As a citizen, loyal; as a neighbor, kind and obliging; and as a friend, his affection was deep, strong and enduring.
To those traits of character was added the glow of an humble and earnest piety so marked as to be undoubted. He lived his religion. To its claims everything else was subordinate. He was sincerely and intelligently attached to the doctrines and order of the Presbyterian Church, of which he was a member for nearly three score years. Its schemes of benevolence enlisted his sympathies, and prayers and systematic support. In his last will, made in view of his accountability as a steward of God, he recognized the claims upon him, of those without the Gospel.
His was a green, happy old age. He was spared most of its infirmities and in joyous faith and hope awaited the summons to depart.
The protracted sufferings experienced in his last illness were borne with patience. He passed away calmly in the full profession of his senses, relying entirely and confidingly upon the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Death was robbed of its sting and he sank peacefully to rest.
“Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.”
