Whereas, in tho death of Brother
Goo. C. Patterson the Silent Reaper
has removed from our ranks one of
our most beloved comrades, who was
a faithful and consistent member ot
our lodge-kind and considerate and
possessed of those qualities which
won for him a host of friends, and
with indomitable strength and cour
age, he was ever ready to serve his
fellow man, which qualities tended
to lit him for that spiritual homo not
made with hands, eternal in the hea
vens.
His day has como--not gone;
His sun lias risen-not s?t;
lila life is now beyond the reach of
death or chango:
Not ended-but begun.
Therefore, be It resolved
First. That we miss him from his
placo in this lodge, in which he was
a faithful comrade.
Second. That this community and
lodge have lost one of their most val
ued citizens, whose lifo was an ex
ample which may well be followed
by those who survive him.
Third. That a page in our minute
hook he inscribed to his memory and
a copy of this preamble and resolu
tion be printed in tho county papers,
and a copy sent to his family.
