Whereas, The life that made our association with him pleasant is at an end, and the gates are closed upon our further intercourse; and

Whereas, By his many ennobling traits of character he had endeared himself to us, and in his career has left an example to his friends and fellow members; and,

Whereas, Those manly qualifications which he passed influence us in a sincere desire to testify to an appreciation of his life amongst us; be it therefore

Resolved, That in the death of, Our Brother, Who was a member of Madison Lodge No. 221 Free and Accepted Masons, we sincerely deplore the loss of one to whom we had become affectionately attached by long association and by relations which were never marred by the least occurrence of an unfriendly act.

Farewell Good and Faithful Servant...
