Bessie Smith

In Little Rock, Arkansas, December 21, 1889--Bessie Smith daughter of Mrs. M.F. Woodal, aged eleven years.
She was a faithful attendant of the Second Baptist Sunday school, and a bright and attentive pupil. Just before her death she told her mother that she new she was dying, but was happy in a Savior's love and in the hope of the everlasting happiness that awaited her. While we sympathize with her bereaved relatives, let us be comforted in the hope that we shall meet her in that Eternal City where loved ones never part and sorrows never come.
Respectfully submitted,
