Obituary

DEATHS

In Royalton, April 27th, of disease contracted in the service while in the Shenandoah Valley, Oliver H. Stevens, member of Co. E, 4th Reg't Vt. Vols, aged 24 years, 7 months and 27 days, - son of the late Capt. Oliver and Caroline M. Stevens.

We stood by his side, and saw the light
In his soft, young eyes grow dim;
And his pure, sweet brow grow sadly white,
As we watched beside him, that live-long night;
And we knew that his spirit would soon unite
With the white-winged cherubim.

His auburn hair in many a curl,
Sprayed over the pillow white
And his feeble breathing grew loud and brief,
And the Death-angle came with sweet relief,
And bore his spirit from pain and grief,
To its home in Paradise!
