EVERY HEART MADE SAD BY THE LOSS OF THOSE WHOSE FORMS HAVE PASSED THB

SILENT PORTALS OF DEATH'S SHADOWY VALLEY-HEALTH, CONSOLATION,

AND THAT JOY-THE HOPE OF IMMORTAL LIFE-WHICH PASSETI

THE PEACE OF EARTH:

To this end, beloved reader, I have, in the kindred sympathy of sorrowing bereavement, gathered together these words of love and cheer, in the hope that, among them may perchance be found that balm which shall bring soothing to the troubled bosom, filling it with all fullness of trust in the perfection of Divine Beneficence, and thus preparing it to join its waiting companions, in that land of bliss, beauty and goodness, where

"everlasting spring abides, And never withering flowers,"

and where “their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in

heaven."

EMILY THORNWELL.
