[384]

Twixt night and morn upon the horizon's verge,
Between two worlds love hovered like a star.

And thus on the morning of October 12th, the star of the mortal sank into the sunrise of immortality, and Robert Lee passed hence to ‘where beyond these voices there is peace.’

Tell A. P. Hill to prepare for action,’ were amongst the last words of Stonewall Jackson. ‘Tell Hill he must come up,’ were the last words of Lee. Their brave Lieutenant, who rests under the green turf of Hollywood, seems to have been latest in the minds of his great commanders, while their spirits yet in martial fancy, roamed again the fields of conflict, and ere they passed to where the soldier dreams of battle-fields no more.
