It is with special sadness we meet to prepare resolutions of esteem and to express our grief for the loss of one who was ever ready to defend our rights and speak words of encouragement to our people.
Whereas, In Godís allwise providence death has removed from us Henry W. Grady, our friend and our champion, and,
Whereas, It seems meet and proper that we should do honor to his friendship, therefore,
Resolved, That we heard with deepest sorrow and grief, of the death of our friend, Henry Woodfin Grady.
Resolved, That our club and our class has lost its strongest friend and most brilliant champion, who was ever dauntless and whose loss we feel is irreparable.
Resolved, recalling his unselfish friendship and untiring energy for our cause and our people, we feel his death to be a sever personal affliction.
Resolved, These resolutions be spread upon the minutes of our club, that a copy be sent to the family of Mrs. Grady, that the Constitution be forwarded a copy, and that our county paper be requested to publish.
