Tribute of Respect.

Whereas, God, in his infinite wisdom, has removed from our midst our beloved school-mate Sophia Stubbs, who, but one short week since sported in the grove happy, in the enjoyment of health:  Therefore be it

Resolved, That while we deeply sympathize with her bereaved relatives and friends, in their irreparable loss, we would bid them remember that their beloved sister and friend has reached that bourne where there is no pain, no agony, no anguish now.

Resolved, That while we sincerely lament the loss of our beloved young friend and school-mate, we humbly bow before the decrees of our Heavenly Father, and do not mourn as those who have no hope, but trust that we may so live that we may meet her again where “The wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest.”  Young, beautiful and endowed with all that makes life desirable and attractive, she has been suddenly removed to another and better world.  The angels knew their sister on earth, and she has gone to join their company in Heaven.

Resolved, That a copy of this tribute be furnished the bereaved family of our departed school-mate, and also be put upon the records of our school.
