It is natural that it should be so; for if through life we have entertained firm hopes of immor tality, those hopes remain and bright en at the portals of the tomb. But those who have disbelieved and those who have doubted have nothing to cheer them in the dark transition; and if they had misgivings, those dreary misgivings last when all the vanities that covered them have melted away like snow.
