On Monday morning, after a brief illness, little Robert Rufus, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Sadler.

“Little Rufe” was a bright, promising child, the joy of the household, and was only sick a few days, before he was taken to the Father’s fairer fields.

Robert Rufus Sadler.

This bright little boy died early in the morning of the 25th of May last.  He was ten months and twelve days old.  The only child of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Sadler, and the only grandchild of Col. and Mrs. R. H. Jones, of this city, his death was a heavy and saddening blow.  He was a lovely little fellow and promised so much.  His death was sudden and entirely unexpected.  This renders the affliction a harder one to bear.  How many a precious and bright memory his name recalls of hopes blossomed, drooped, and died, in life’s early spring.

But let no bitter tears be shed for him.  A little blossom of being, he was seen for only a few brief months, and then God took him home.  Let us strew flowers alone upon his grave.  A rosy ray was his life, and it blushed into dawn and passed away.
