Tribute of Respect.

Whereas, it hath pleased an All-wise Creator, to remove from amongst us, our dearly beloved brother, John Murphy.—It becomes us as members of the Lodge, of which he was an exemplary member, and as individuals, to express our deep regret and heart-felt sorrow, at so sad a loss.

But, though we have, in sorrow and tears, deposited our brother in the cold grave, yet we will not murmur or ask why he was taken from us: the mysteries of Providence are indeed inscrutable.

Therefore, in view of the loss we have sustained individually, and as a body, be it—

Resolved, That we deeply deplore the loss of one whose pure character and many virtues, won for him the warmest friendship of his acquaintances while living, and will secure the highest respect to his memory, now that he is no more.

Resolved, That a written copy of these proceedings be transmitted to the afflicted family of our deceased brother.
Resolved, That the same be sent to the Cassville Standard, and Cartersville Express, for publication.
