Guy Hatley Slater

Died July 27, 1897 at Judsonia, Ark., of typhoid malaria. Aged 14 years and ten days. Our home boy, in whom we rested great expectations of assistance and comfort in future years. He was to be our office boy in the college and our gardener at the new home, as well as student. He was a devoted Christian, but was willing to die. He had packed his little trunk carefully for our move to Mountain Home, but they check no baggage on the road he took. We shall all pass that way soon. May we all be well prepared. The grandmother, past eighty years, could not understand why Providence should take the children and leave the aged and infirm; but we know that he makes no mistakes and doeth all things well
