"Thy country called, with noble zeal
Thy youthful life was given:
Thy Saviour's call thous too didst feel:
Thy life is now in heaven."
- By a friend
"Albert has bowed beneath the storm
The grave conceals his manly form
And tears are shed upon the tomb
Of him who fell in youthful blooms."
-L. R. Jackson
