Dear Brother Gold :—
By request I send you a short no
tice of the death of tliree infant chil
dren of brother John A., and si.ster
FLORENCE ALLEN was born Oct. 2nd,
1865, and died Oct. 19th, 1870-aged 4 year.s,
11 months and 29 days. CHARI FY ELE.A-
NOR was born Oct. 30th, 1869, and died Ju
ly Slst, 1872—aged 2 years, 9 months and 1
day. LEMUEL THEODORE was born
Nov. 12ai, 1874, and died Oct. 25th, 1S76—
eged 1 year, 11 months and 13 days.
Thus we feel that those dear infants have
been borne by the angels from this sinful,
troubl isome world to that happy place where
Jesus their Savior dw'ells, and somiw.s and
Bufferings are no more. B it yet we feel
loth with them to part, and hope that Jesus
will comfort and con.sole their parent.s, broth
ers, sisters and friends ; and may they feel
tliat the Lord doetli ail tilings well, and so
endeavor to walk foiw.ird towards Jesus, that
they may meet with them in that world
where parting will be known no more ;
“ And have their lovely shadows fled!
Yet stop those fniitl^ tears ;
They from a tiiousand |>ang.s arefreed^
You from ten thousattd feuaa.
Though lost, they’ie lost to earth alone.
Above they will be found
Amidst the stars and near the tlvorie.
Which babes like them .surround.
Look upward and your children .sec.
Fixed in iheir ble.ssed abode;
What parent would not childless be,
To give a child to God !”
G. M. HARDY.
Robky .ML, N. C., Nov. 28th, 1876.
Elder P. D. Gold—Dear Brother in

and highly esteemed old brother, ,\.\'riI.\N-
lEL WOMBLE, who deparied this life Oct.
8th. 1876—aged 78 year.s and some days.
He was born in tlie yearof our Ijord, 1798
His di.^ease was dropsy cf the heart. He
had been a pious, upright and orderly mem
ber of the Primitive Baptist cnurch for 40
years; and during (iiat period of time had
never had the .slighte.st charge jirefered
I was witii him in liis last moments of life.—
He died in tlie strongest triumphs of faith
that I liave ever witne.-sed. Only a few
hours before he ilied be seemed to be giving
glory to God, and tried to sing a hymn ; and,
in the morning of the .same day, was anxious
to go to church ; and told me if he could not
go, for me to go and do iny duty Hi.s words
of admonition to me, I shall reniembor I
think, while I live. He died at half pa.sl 8
Dear broth -r Gold, I write this scribble

Y^our unworthy brother, in hope,
Wm. E. GREEN.

DIED—Near this place, .Mrs. John Coley,
on the 8th of, September—aged 25 years and
some days. She was confined to her bed five
months, very ill, but in her rigiit mind all
the lime. A few d;iys before she died, on the
night of the .second Saturday in Sept., late at
night, she sent for me to go and see her,
which I (lid. When 1 got there she told me
slie was bound to die, and said slie wanted me
to'Mng t^yiiiii, c^imei^difg.
"hS," lor .slie
was a sinner. I tried to satisfy her and she
seemed to 1)6001116 more coiri|)osed. I sing sev
eral livniii.s for her or in hearing, and left her.
She .sent for me again on .Monday fdllowing,
and I went to see her again. She had under
gone a great change. When I went in the
house and comiiienctd talking with lier she
told me that she was willing to die, and pray
ed tliat her blessed JeHIS would take hermit
of her sufferings. She .seemed to express
great willingne s to die. She asked me to
sing and pray with her, which I did the best
I could, and was willing to try to give thanks
for the blessed and e..livening a pear mceof
our blessed Jesns, which I ^ould see inakiiu'-
itself manifest in lier brightened up comue-
She died in faitii, believing that her sins
were all pardoned and that all would be
peace with her,and thatall she hated to leave
was her dear little hahv- She left a husband
and one child, father, mother, two hrotlmrs
and one sister, to inourn their los.s, but I feel
that their loss i.shereteri al gain.
Done by request of her hustand.
Yours truly, in hope,
Wm. E. green.
