Obituary

In the hospital at City Point, Va., Feb. 6, Harley H. Gove of the 3d Vt. Battery, aged 36 years, of Hardwick, Vt., formerly of East Montpelier, Vt.

Oh do not ask me why I weep,
Why tears bedim the eye,
Oh mine is a bitter, bitter grief,
My loving friend has died.

He is not lost but gone before,
He waits me on the other shore,
A heavenly vigil guards his way, From this to an eternal day.

Then Iíll dry my tears, withhold my sighs,
Let praise in holy accents rise,
That He who gave, hath power to keep,
While in the dust his ashes sleep.
