Once again death hath summoned a Brother Odd Fellow, and the golden gateway to the Eternal City hath opened to welcome him to his home. He has completed his work in the ministering to the wants of the afflicted, in shedding light unto darkened souls and in brining joy into the places of misery, and as his reward has received the plaudit - 'Well done" from the Supreme Master. And, whereas, he, having been a true and faithful Brother of our Myrtle Order, therefore be it Resolved that Fraternity Lodge No. 51, I. O. O. F. of Weston, Vermont, in testimony of her loss, tenders to the family of our deceased Brother our sincere condolence in this deep affliction and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family. --C.
