The memory of Robert E. Lee.

To those who knew thee not no words can paint!
And those who knew thee know all words are faint!

Moore, Sensibility.

O, he sits high in all the people's hearts.

such souls leave behind
a voice that in the distance far away
Wakens the slumbering ages.

O, mortal man! be wary how ye judge!

Dante, Vision of Paradise,

among the sons of men how few are known
who dare be just to merit not their own,

cruel and cold is the judgment of man,
cruel as winter and cold as the snow;
but by-and-by will the deed and the plan
be judged by the motive that lieth below.

Bates, by-and-by.

David M. stone.
