Tribute of Respect.

At a meeting of the Board of Sunday School, for Lumpkin county, held on the 8th inst., the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted:

Whereas, The all-wise superintendent of the Universe has taken from life, and from the society of family and friends, our former fellow citizen, Mr. FREDERICK D. BOARTFIELD, Sen., who died recently in the county of Bartow, in this State.  He was for many years the able and successful Superintendent of the Union Sabbath School in the town of Dahlonega, and will long be remembered by hundreds of his former scholars, for his indefatigable Christian zeal in behalf of the young.  He was a pioneer in the cause of Sabbath Schools.  His efforts were not without the richest rewards – as many Christian men and women, reared under his kindly instructions – and who are today scattered far and wide over our country –could most cheerfully testify to.

It is fitting that this Board –whose object it is to carry on the work he so nobly commenced, and worked for almost alone for many years, should express publicly, the loss which it feels, the country, the church and especially the Sabbath School institution has sustained in his death.  Be it therefore

Resolved, That in the death of FREDERICK D. BOARTFIELD, Sen., the cause of truth, virtue and religion, has lost an earnest advocate and friend; the church of which he was a member has sustained a loss not easily made up, and a void has been created in the family circle, which only those who knelt with him there, can freely appreciate.

Resolved, That we tender our sincerest condolence to the family and friends of the deceased.

Resolved, That a copy of the above preamble and resolution be conveyed to the surviving members of his family; and that the editors of the Mountain Signal and Cartersville Express be requested to publish the above preamble and resolutions in their journals.

N. F. Howard, Pres’t.
W.P. Price, Sect’y Board.
