To the W. M , Wardens and Brethren
of Palmetto Lodge, No. 1?, A. F. M.
In the providence of God we are
called on to record the death of ono of
the oldest and best beloved members of
this ancleut Lodge, one whose face and
figure has been soon and greetod among
us longer and with more regularity
than any other perhaps now living;one
whoso work by tho compass and square,
and whoso efficient sorvlces were so
long recognized and appreciated by all
the Brethren; our own lato brother
Secrotary, Harvey W, Anderson, has
gone from among us. He had passed
the threo score and ten, born January
30th, 1 ?.7; dlod March 20th, 1904. He
was r .a 1 to the sublime degroo of a

tember 17th 1851, and as an evidence of
the confidonco in which ho was held,
was made Treasurer the succeeding

and accommodating, provorblal for his
uniform klndnoss and courtesy to all,
ho possibly had no enemy anywhore.
This wo know is saying much, but we
think not too much for our departed
brother. One of your committee know
him in boyhood,manhood, youth and old
age,and can truly say that, in his stages,
his life comported with this tribute.
He dlod as ho had lived?quietly,
peacefully, in happy union with his
church and people. We thank God
that he was blessed with a long and
usoful life and extend our sympathy
and love for his family an lall bis loved
We submit tho following resolutions:
Resolved 1st: Tint in the death of
Brother II. W. Anderson, this Lodge

2nd: That our hall bo draped in
mourning for thirty days, and that a
page of our records be Inscribed to his
3rd: That a copy of this preamble
and resolutions be glvon to tho family
of our deceasod brother by the W. M.,
of this Lodge with expressions of our
sincere sympathy and condolence.
