Miss FANNY BOSTON, daughter of Mr. F. A. and Mrs. Fanny Boston, departed this life at her home, her father’s house, in Bartow county, Ga., on the 26th of November, 1872, with consumption.  Her affliction was protracted for over twelve months, but she bore her suffering with a great deal of patience, scarcely ever heard to complain, and when asked if she was suffering she would say, “Nothing but weakness.”

The subject of this brief notice was born in the then Cass but now, Bartow county, Ga., on the 5th of December, 1848.  Fanny was a dutiful and obedient daughter, a loving and much beloved sister, a well respected and highly esteemed friend, by all who knew her.  She never made a public profession of religion, but she was often seen at the altar for prayer.  She was conversed with some ten days before death, by the writer, on the subject of religion and her future prospects.  She said that she was not satisfied at that time, but she would try to give herself fully to God, and try to claim the promises of the Saviour.  Three days before her death she was conversed with on the same subject by the same person.  She gave some better evidence, and said that she was better satisfied; so with the evidence that is before us, and knowing her as we did, we are bound to conclude that she has gone to a better world than this; and when the messenger came she calmly and peaceably journeyed with him to the goodly land where she will die no more, in a land of bliss where the weary are at rest.

FANNY leaves her bereaved parents, several brothers and sisters and a host of friends to mourn their loss. – A FRIEND
