On the 25th day of June 1885, God in his inscrutable providence saw fit to reclaim, and recall from the tenement of clay, the spirit of Willie Ingram. In so doing he has claimed his own, will we should at all times bow submissively. In Willie’s conduct, in attendance and observance of the requirements of the Sabbath school we find an example worthy of imitation. Having placed his faith in the atoning blood of Jesus, his death was triumphant, While we part with him in sorrow, we feel that “our loss is his eternal gain.” Therefore be it.
Resolved 1st, that we tender our sympathies to his almost heat-broken mother and other relations in this, their sad bereavement.
2nd. That this preamble and resolutions be spread upon the record of our Sabbath school, and that the secretary be instructed to furnish the mother of the deceased with a copy thereof.
