Sallie Dawson

Sallie, ten year old daughter of T.F. and Ann Dawson, closed her eyes on the light of this world, at her fathers in Trenton, Arkansas, September 29th, 1891, after suffering from congestion only twenty-six hours.
She was not only the sunshine of the home but the pride of the town. The writer loved her with a peculiar tenderness, and he rejoices with the broken hearted parents in the blessed hope of clasping little Salllie to his bosom again. Remember, dear brother and sister,  "When the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son who he receiveth."
May the balm of God's love heal the broken heart.
Giles. C. Taylor
