"Resolved, That we offer to the afflicted societies on the circuit, our fervent condolence, and our earnest prayers; we deeply sympathize with them in their bereavements, and ardently hope and pray that God will visit them with the consolations of his grace, and, in his own good way, supply them with the spiritual influence and instruction which may be needed to render fruithful the seed which our brother so affectionately and faithfully scattered among them.

"Resolved, That we do heartily tender to the bereaved family our warmest sympathies and affections; we prayerfully commend them to the merciful providence, care and love of the God of the widow, and the Father of the fatherless; may He lift the light of His countenance upon them; may He support and comfort them in this time of need; may they learn, in this season of trial, more than ever the power and excellence of our holy religion; and may they ever meet that human sympathy as well as divine consolation so desirable and valuable in their afflictive circumstances.

"Resolved, That we depute five of our brethren, viz: Revs. T. Marcy, W. Hubbard, L. Fish, W. P. Jordan and A. S. Flagg, to bear these resolutions to the bereaved family and churches, and to attend the obsequies of our departed brother as representatives of this Preachers' Meeting."
