of our souls. For we do not mourn

as those without hope. 

My own dear Cousin,

It was with feelings 

of much sorrow and regret, that I received

the mournful intelligence of the death

of dear little Tabb. I had been expecting

to hear of the release of this dear little

suifferer, but I still hoped that the skill

of the Physician might baffle the fatal

enemy. We should not opine or murmur

but feel much consoled with your loss

being his gain,; he now rests in the bosom 

of his father where sickness, sorrow

pain or death and       and       

no more. Would  we could now exchange

this abode of sin, misery for the one 

which he is now enjoying. All that

pertains to death is awfully impressive.

And if we go not beyond the Grave 

it is overwhelming.But thanks be to God 

who giveth us the victory through our Lord 

Jesus Christ.
