Reader, aged six years.
Reader was formerly a citi zen of the
State of , but had resolved to remove to this
his family and accordingly had taken a passage on board the Steam
Boat “Uncle Sam”. We are not aware that blame is attached to any one:
he fell overboard when there was none to help, he was seen by his
parents when 15 or 20 rods distant, waving his hands and crying for
help, there was an exertion made by the crew and small boat to save

unexpect ed hour, as her companion was from home perhaps near one
thousand miles at the time of her decease, and was deprived of the
privilege of witnessing her exit from a world of sorrow and
perplexity, to the paradise of God.
But, Alas! she
is gone home! yes, (using her own languge to one of her tender
offsprings when on her dying bed,) “Tell
your father when he comes that the Lord has taken your mother home,
and left you for him to take care of.”

Sav ior, and enduring in faith on his name to the end, that she should
have a part in the first resurrection, and come forth and inherit the
mansion that is prepar ed for the faithful, and receive the wel come
plaudit “Come ye blest of my Father inherit that kingdom prepared for
you from before the foundation of [t]he world.”
