Near Kingston, Ga., April 18, 1880, little ROSA LEE, daughter of John N. and Ella F. McGUIRE, aged one year, five months and one day.

Over the river the boatman pale
Carried our only girl.
The loved one has crossed the other side.
The gleam of her snowy robes we see,
But her voice is lost in the dashing tide,
And the pale mists hide her from our view.
We saw not the angel who met her there,
The gates of the city we could not see.
Over the mystic river, the mystic river,
Our darling is waiting for us.

The Parents.
