OBITUARY

WHEREAS, it has pleased God to recently take away from amongst us three of our number, Corporal John Pope, and Privates John M. Sutton and Guy Stoughton, therefore

RESOLVED-- that in this afflicting dispensation of Providence, we suffer the loss of three of the truest and most faithful soldiers of our company. Always earnest in the discharge of duty, genial in social intercourse, noble in soul, they were friends to all of us indeed-------Soldiers of Christian Pattern

RESOLVED-- that while we deeply sorrow at the loss of three good men and soldiers in the “Army of God”, yet we cannot but envy them their end, knowing that there can be nothing sweeter in the eyes of God and men than for ones country to die.

RESOLVED---that to the heart-stricken and bereaved families of our lamented comrades, we tender our most heart-felt sympathies in their hour of tribulation and trial; assuming them that the memory of their virtues, and the example of their patriotism will remain deep in our hearts.

RESOLVED—that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the families of each of the deceased—also to the daily papers of Burlington, Vermont.

FOR; Co.C. 13th VT. Vols. Henry C. Tennant, Clerk.
