Wheres, our Allwise Creator, in the exercise of His infinite mercy, has seen fit to relieve her suffering, by sending the death angel to remove from our midst our esteemed sister, Mrs. Geo. W. Waters; therefore, be it
Resolved, That in her death our worthy brother and his family have lost an affectionate and untiring helpmeet, and our expression herewith submitted is in sincere condolence with them; that our community sadly misses the presence of a friendly, charitable and benevolent lady, possessing all the ennobling virtues of the Rathbone Sisterhood, and we deeply deplore her demise.
