far and wide; and two are lying side gby side beneath the cold ground. What a change a few years has made! Why, O! Why has it been so? Why has Death claimed the fairest & the best? Why should my Mother, my dear, dear Mother have been taken away from her children; and my noble, darling brother in the first prime of his young manhood, all his promises of usefulness blighted. Why should he have been called thus early! while so many are weary, and would fain lay down the burden of this life and rest. Father of Mercies teach me to bow in submission and say "Thy will be done." Make me feel the "Great Father" had need of him and it was not meet he should remain longer here. Enable me to look away from the sufferings
