[287]

Especially do we offer to the family, bereft of a devoted father, our hands and hearts, accompanied by our prayers, that in this time of sore distress they may feel ‘underneath them the everlasting arms,’ and that they may hear the voice of Jesus saying: ‘Let not your hearts be troubled; ye believe in God; believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you.’

As for ourselves, in view of the event which calls us together today, each one of us would say: ‘Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his.’

Copies of this action of the session are ordered to be sent to the family of our deceased brother, and to the session of the Second Presbyterian Church.

Robert P. Kerr, Moderator. Robert T. Brooke, Stated Clerk.
