To the Officers and Members of the Cartersville Lodge F. & A. M. No. 101.

Sorrow’s mournful arch must again be reaved (sic), and under it must we bow low our heads, in paying tribute to our deceased Brother, THOMAS POWELL, who died September 19th, 1875.

Be it resolved, That in the death of Brother Powell, Masonry has lost one of her oldest and most zealous members, the Church one of its most strict adherents, his family a kind husband and indulgent father, the community a good citizen.

Be it further resolved, That we deeply sympathize with his bereaved family in their irreparable loss, and can only offer this consolation—he is dead to man, but lives to God.

Resolved further, That we have inscribed a page to his memory upon the minute book of this Lodge and furnish his family with a copy of these resolutions, and that the same be published in the Cartersville STANDARD & EXPRESS.
