The sudden death of C. P. Barrett, which took place at half past ten in the morning of Wednesday, the 23d., was a painful shock to the community. He had been in feeble health for sometime, but was in the store up to Tuesday night, and the last work of his hands was last week's correspondence for the SIFTER. The funeral services were held at the house of his father-in-law, A. F. Howe.
Mr. Barrett had been a merchant in this town for nearly twelve years, and was widely known. Much sympathy is felt for his family in their great affliction, and they would, like here, to express their gratitude for the neighborly kindness shown, and also for the beautiful flowers presented.
A wife and two little daughters are left to mourn.
We see through the glass but darkly,
And know not the reason why,
The rod should be heavy upon us,
In spite of our bitter cry.
But the Father loves his children,
And pities their human need,
And sends their grief upon them,
That they shall be His indeed.
(We received our West Townshend correspondence from Mr. Barrett Tuesday night, with it his inquiry as to how we were getting along, and a kind word of encouragement. He was much appreciated at this office, and the news of his death was a powerful shock. We desire to join with other friends in extending our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved wife, children and friends.
