J I lu Gold, Dear Sir:—
WlTrL iieve cnclrjSOvil oO Toin
wliicliyou M’ili please send me'’
two C0[)ies of Mrs. Phillips
i.'imphlet. I am so desirous
that everv body should read it that
I keep mine loanctl out. If I was
able 1 would buy a. lot for distribu-
;iou. I cannot express my feelings,
thoughts or desires, like she can, but
I think I can feel what she says, and
ti;athcr strength and comfort by the
same ; and many parts I cannot read
without shedding tears. Her visions
or strange feelings and impressions of
mind, to write &c., reach the in
most parts of my very soul.
Dear Drother Gold:—
s lam writing on business, I wish
f/-k fn flto Ao‘av Srpfhron anfl
to say to tlie dear brethren and
friends who.se names I have sent on
as subscribers for the Landmarks,
that, I feel responsible for the pay
ment of their dues, and I hope they
will all be prompt to send forward
tlie money by the First of December
next. Tho,se living convenient to
me can hand it tome at any time.
and 1 will forward it to the Editor.
I feel assured that no subscriber to
this valuable paper would Nvish his
paper discontinued : some say, they
would not be without it for one year
for five Dollars; nor do we consider
this estimate at all extravagant.
Therefore we should not fail to [lay
up the small amouni of its cost to
enable our beloved Editor to contin
ue its publication.

Where no farewell tear is slied.
Fannie K. Daniel,
^1EPAK.TED this life at her re.sidenee in
w Person Gonnty, N. C., .June 6th, 1876:
Itfrs. Nancv^ Horton, in the seventiedi year
of her age. She was the daughter of James
Bradsher, Sr. She was married to Samuel
A. Horton, .lanuary 13th, 1824, with whom
she lived flfty-one years, but slie has now left
liim to mourn liis great loss. They were both
members of the Primitive Baptist Churcli.—
She professed a hope in Christ in the year
1828 and was received and baptized at Up
per South Hyco Cliurch the 2nd Sunday in
September 1828, v.diere she remained a faith
ful member until death. She leaves a hus
band, one daugliter, two grand-daughters,
two grand-sons, two great grand-daughter.s,
and a large circle of relatives and friends to
mourn their loss. WJien death came it was
not accouipanied with any hard struggle—
she was conscious to the last. She was not
confined to her bed but a short time, and
could walk across the room until a few days
before lier death. She did not seem to suffer
any great pain, hut complained of weakness
and thirst more than anything else. She
bore her sickness with great patience and for
titude, and said if it was the Lord’s will to
afflict her she would bear it the best she could.
It is iiard to give her up, but our loss is
lier eternal gain. W^e must look beyond this
vale of tears and behold her clothed in spot
less robe.s amid that glorions throng around
the throne. Her freed spirit is now where
sorrow, sicknes.s, pain and death are felt and
feared no more.
Since it is the Lord’s will we mn.st not
murmur at our troubles ; but, will saj, the
Lord giveth and the Lord taketh awaj^, bless
ed be the name of the Lord.
f UR Darling Little AIaida Amelia Hund
ley died July 21st, 1875: aged one
year, one month and twenty-iliree days. She
did not seem to sufl'er very much, until tlie
night she died ; but, about five hours before
she died she became perfectly quiet and com
posed, and remained in that condition till
she breathed lier last breath. She died with
out a .struggle: siie went off as one going to
.sleep. Truly she fell asleep iu .Jesus—that
blessed sleep from wliicli none ever wake to
She was a lovely child and loved by all
who knew her, but she is gone lioine to join
that happy little band above.
The Lord gave and the Lord hatli
taken away, blessed be the name of the
Lord. It was hard to give her up ; but she
is gone to rest, and her parents cannot wish
her back again, but can say: Dear babe, witli
bud. She lias left her sorrowing loved ones,
but .she blooms an immortal flower in the
bowers of heaven.
Then mourn not for y our babe : she has
gone to that state where joys unspeakable
are hers; and, now may you by faith ever lock
across the river and .see another Spirit wait
iug for you on the otlier shore. S.
The little babe is gone to rest.
To r, igu with God forever blest:
Its little tongue will always praise
A Savior’s love—redeeming grace.
Far from a world of sin and strife;
It now enjoys a heavenly life:
And joins to praise, and shout and sing.
And make the heavenly arches ring
Could we hut hear its little tongue,
S6 sweetly sing the heavenly song :
Could we but see it.s smiling face
Delighted with the heavenly place.
Wo could not wish it back again.
But say. Dear babe, with God remain :
We’ll try to gain that peaceful shore,
AVliere tlio.se who meet, part no more.
Now let us strive the prize to gain ;
Let’s come to Christ, with him remain ;
Then we.sliall share in .Jesus’ love.
And meet the little babe above.
.Brotlier Gold, pray God to enable us to
bow in humble submission to liis will, and
teach us to love him that we may meet our
sweet little Maida above.

E. and Celestia Dillon: aged fourteen montlis-
Tlie fresh blossoms of our earthly joys are
often blasted: a sweet and innocent little
b.ihe sleeps the sleep that knows ro waking.
Tliere is no endearment of genius, no lofty
and impassioned utterances of human speech
which make the close of life so beautiful and
glorious, .as to stand by the bedside of a dying
infant: seeing it breathe so calm till it falls
asleep in Jesus, and is wafted on wings of
love, to that house of many mansions above,
to bloom forever.
The young and tender gem, though strick
en by the ruthless hand of Death, is not de
stroyed, and the pure and spotless soul of
little Clarence has been plucked from earth
only to be received into the bright and glori
ous habitation of the Holy One who gave it.
