At the residence of his brother, Maj. Wm. Clarke Wyly, in Cass county, on the 6th day of August last, Dr. WALTON WYLY, late of Talladega, Alabama.  For many months he was laboring under consumption, from which he died.  All his sufferings were borne with as much fortitude and resignation as usually falls to the lot of humanity.  Before his death he made a profession of religion, and connected himself with the Church militant; and though he did not long live on earth to serve his Redeemer, he gave to his relatives and friends the happiness of believing that he has joined the spirits of the “just made perfect.”  He was buried by the Masonic Fraternity, of which he had long been a zealous and exemplary member.  Having completed his work upon earth, he is now at refreshment with the Great Architect, and is enjoying the reward promised to all the redeemed in Christ.

Cassville Lodge, No. 136,
Cassville, Ga., Sept. 21, 1852

“O death, stern archer, could not one suffice?”

Whereas, in the all-wise Providence of God, two worthy brother Masons have been called from time to eternity, to-wit: Brother WALTON WYLY and Brother WM. FAIN.  Therefore Resolved,
1st That this Lodge is both deeply bereaved and solemnly warned in this afflictive and mysterious event.
2d. That not only as Masons, but as citizens, they mourn the loss of these high-minded and honorable members of society.
3d. That most of all they heartily sympathize with the relatives of the deceased—especially the widows and the fatherless children; to whom may “God temper the winds as to the shorn lamb,” and furnish to them that comfort sweeter than human sympathy and the consolation he alone can give.
4th That above be entered upon the minutes of this Lodge and a copy of the same sent to the families of the deceased respectively.
Also that a copy be given to the editor of the Standard for publication.

D. M. Hood,
John J. Word,
Jno. W. Burke
