Whereas, It is our earnest desire to express
our deep respect and fraternal regret for our
deceased Sovereign and convey to his bereaved

eyes shall be opened to the brightness of the
hereafter, which, like a sweet and beautiful
vision shall come stealibg o'er our senses and

in an eternal reality of jo'. and the cold stone
which marks his last resting place shall stand
