News and~ Courier, Dsc. 9.
"Just as the' san is setting, and
everything connected with u.v burial
is finished., let my friend and brother,
Mr. W. F. Whilden, or some other
proper ar-d competent pe-son, step to
the head of the grave, and with his
cornet sound the 'Tattoo,' and then the
algnal, 'Lights Out!'"
Among the effects of the Rev. C. E.
Chichester, who passed away early
yesterday morning, was found a pap~r
written by his own hand, giving full
"directions for my funeral and burial "
and c ;ntaining the request which we
have prised above The "directions"
were written in November, 1894, four
years ago. They begin with the
declaration, "bel'ng of calm-and sensi
ble mind," and end with a confession
of faith in "the Triune God" -
faith which sustained his soul amidst
all the confliets and sufferings of life
and confronted him in the long, hard
* struggle turough which he passed into
the sweet contentment of the higher
and better life.
The following also cocurs in the
."directions," and shows how true toe
brave heart, which is stilled forever,
beat for the cause he loved so well and
served Eo faithfully:a
"The spot long since selected for my
final 'resting place, and. fully under
stood between Mrs. Snowden and my
, and made a matter of permanent
rd, as she assured me, is right
der the shadow of the large soldier
ument, in the centre of the Con
derate plot. it, Magnolia Cemetery,
vhere it will be cared for for all future
ime by the descendants of those who
ought for the Confederacy. * '
'Let the burial take place, if con
renient, at the close of the day, to ter
ainate abcat sundown. It may seem
.o otbers a strange desire tbat I, a
;bristian minister of the gospel of
?edcc, should- express a wish that a
Walte, suitable to the rank of a Cap
sin of Artillery, be fired over my
rave, after all other services are over,
>y a piece or section of Light Artii
lery, providing it be done in a soldierly
manner, and not by an awdward squad
>r undrilled men. To this end, if not
enough well-trained veteran Confed
rate officers or men can be easily
gathered to perform this duty properly,
a detachment from the Citadel Cadets
might be securod."
Then follows the reqest that "tat
too" and "lights out" be sounded at
his grave after "everything connected
with my burial is finished," and the
final request that he be left to "rest
quietly in the tomb until the Archan
gel's trumpet shall sound," and the
earth and the sea shall give 6p their
dead and the soldiers of the Confed
eracy, from battlefield and camp and
prison,.fro mountain and valley and
plain, shaft respond to the call of the
great Captain of Salvation, "Here!" .
Thei e is a grand pathos in the words
of the Chrisian soldier who rests from
his labors; a touch of the dramatic,
not, as he says, prompted "by any
vain and presumptuous motives," but
because he believed that "death to the
Christian is not a cause for sorrow and
morning, but * * * a glorious
and triumphant passage to the enjoy
ments of the eternal world beyond."
It was for the purpose of irr.pressing
"this idea upon the living" that the
"directions" were given as to the
character of "the Scripture passages.
the prayers, the remarks and the
music," and the Masonic and military
ceremonies at his funeral.
"I have always expressed the de
sire," Mr, Chicbester wrote, "to be
buried in my Confederate unform coat,
wbich is packed away for the purpose
in a large packing trunk," and in this
uniform he will be laid to rest to-day.
He was fnithful unto death. His life
and courage and hope and faith should
be an inspiration to those who are
waiting to cross over the river into the
