He was prized while living and mourned at his death ; and the legend
on his tombstone, " So He giveth his beloved sleep," expresses the feeling
of friends cencerning him.

" And when that brave soul conquered
Casting its bonds away,
The church bells all were ringing.
For it was Sabbath day.
There, where his spirit lingers,
Is home and rest and peace, —
Enough to make a heaven ;
Death was the soul's release." E. C. R,
