Thus are the name, the generosity, and the patriotism of our departed friend indissolubly linked with the holiest monument erected within the confines of this monumental city; a monument redolent of the prayers, the loves, and the tears of mother, wife, sister, daughter; a monument crystalizing in towering and symmetrical form the memories of the Confederate struggle for independence; a monument standing as a spotless, imperishable, just tribute to our Confederate dead. To the cause which it symbolizes and the heroes who perished in its support, time can bring no shadow, nor envious years oblivion.
