DIED – Oct. 21st 1875, of Acute Laryngitis, FANNIE LOIS, infant daughter of R. A. and F. H. CLAYTON.

Where now those little heads with silken hair
And forms whose velvet touch, such pleasure gave
While in your loving arms they nestled there?
They’re buried in the cold and silent grave.

It seems so sad to think they both should die;
So beautiful, so loved, so sweet and fair.
How strange to us, but Jesus knoweth why
He called so soon, your precious darlings there.

Sweet buds of Summer, tiny faded flow’rs;
The memory of their lives so short, so pure
Shall linger long, and drape the passing hours
With sad regrets: God help you to endure.
S. R. M.

[Also refers to the death on Oct. 23, 1875 of Constance Elizabeth Clayton]
