an almost hopeless grief to you.
I was with him when he died and
he was quite une iis< is for at least
ah hour. Before that he had murmur
ed "Mother" once or twice and there
seemor! to be ano her name which he
whispered with a ?m iib hui I could
not catch it. Ile really did not suffer
at all. I don't say tai- tb comfort
you, but the las: day he was quiet
and dreamy and i h :ld his hand and
prayed for him and for you as he
slipped away into ii might almost
might have been si .. li" was so
good and brave an i ? . (sidc rate of
us and th- other pati rs that it was
a great grief tb both Sliter and me
when he died but :. you could see

heroism you would ,\ with all the
force of your bei.: ::.:;; their spirits
