"At a regular communication of Otsego lodge, No. 138, F. & A. M.,
held at their room on Tuesday evening, Dec. 20, 1870, the following
resolutions were adopted :

" Whereas, the death of our beloved brother, Charles Thurston,
has been mourned in our lodge ; and whereas, we have paid the last
sad rites to his memory; and whereas, we have deposited over his re-
mains the emblem of our faith in the immortality of the soul ; and
whereas, during the dark days of masonr}', our aged and revered
brother stood a landmark of the fraternity, bearing himself a masonic
pyramid among the ruins of masonry in this state, around whose base
the waves of anti-masonry beat and roared in vain, and around whose
summit the faithful clung with hope ; and whereas, he lived to see the
once despised order raising itself. Phoenix-like, from its own ashes,
and its members honored and revered by the great and good of the
country ; and whereas, he has been cut down in the fullness of his
years; therefore,

" Resolved, That we, as members of the lodge whose existence our
deceased brother perpetuated, when others faltered and fell back, and
whose loss we now deplore, do hereby express our heart-felt sympathy
with those of his family who survive him, and mingle our tears with
theirs ; and that the lodge shall be draped with mourning for thirty

" Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family
of the deceased, and that they be published in the village papers.
