-1 f.' ZION’S LANDMARKS Charlotte^ N. Sept. 26,1870. Sir . C., 1 0. ; Brother L. I. Bodenhamer—Dear By and through the goodness and mercies of an all-wise God, I am still the spared monument of his amazing mercy, and blessed with an- otlier opportunity of sending on for the little soul-cheering messenger, Zion’s Landmarks, which i.s a source of great consolation to a banished ex ile, as I seem to be, excluded from the ])]easure of my being with or hearing the gospel proclaimed through a cru cified and risen Saviour. Brother Bodenhamer, since my last correspon dence with you, the God of heaven has again restored unto me a poor sinful and vile wretch my health, for which I wish and desire to praise, magnify and adore my God and Sa viour for his goodness toward the children of men. I had almost des“ paired of ever being well again.—■ Brother Bodenhamer, if you or any of the dear brethren should ever pass by Charlotte, please call on me. I would be glad even to see one of my dear brethren or sisters of the Old School order. Remember me, my dear brethren and sisters, at a throne of grace. I remain Your unworthy brother, HARGIS FARTHING. f—! OBITUARY. Bbothkr Bodknhambu :—By the request of the rolatiyes I send you the following obituai’y notice of our aged father and brother, WHITTENTON WIGGINS, who died at his residence in Stuart county, Ga., on the 5th of January, 1868_ and in the 77th year of his age. Brother Wiggins was bom and raised in Franklin county, N. C., and emigrated to Georgia, where he spent the remainder of bis days; he was the son of Archey and Sarah Wiggins. Brother W. had been iden tified with the Primitive Baptists for over forty years, and a meinberof the church at Harmony for thirty years, and was invaria bly sent as her messenger to the Harmony Association. He lived and died strong in tlie faith of the Primitive Baptists. His disease was dropsy of ihe chest and palpi- tation of the heart, with which he suffer ed a great deal, being confined to his bed for five weeks. He talked freely on the subject of death, and expressed himst^lf as being ready and willing to go and be with Jesus. He left a wife and three daughters and seven grand children with many fiieuds to mourn their loss, but they sorrow not as those wh» have no hope. He was very kind and affectionate to his children and grand children; they will never cease to remember and speak of his kindness. Why do we mourn departing friends, ')r shake at death's alarms, Tis but the voice that Jesus sends To call them to His arms. Brother Wiggins leaves no son to benr his name. May the Lord sustain tho be reaved family. I. K. TEAT. APPOINTMENTS. Elder C. C. BLAND will preach as follows : Sunday, December 4th, Rose of Sharon. Monday, 5th, Bear Creek. Tuesday, 6th, Mewborn’s.
