The writer heard him preach twice and both times he delivered both an impressive and spiritual sermon."1a

      "Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
      Peaceful in the grave so low;
      Thou no more wilt join our number,
      Thou no more our songs shalt know.
      Yet again we hope to meet thee,
      When the day of life is fled,
      Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
      Where no farewell tear is shed."2a
