Never have I seen a man who so completely fulfilled the Scripture injunction, to forgive an erring brother not only seven times, but seventy times seven. I have witnessed relapse after relapse into vice, under circumstances which seemed like the most heartless ingratitude to him; but he joyfully hailed the first symptom of repentance, and was always ready to grant a new probation. Farewell, thou brave and kind old Friend! The prayers of ransomed ones ascended to Heaven for thee, and a glorious company have welcomed thee to the Eternal City. On a plain block of granite at Greenwood Cemetery, is inscribed: Isaac T. Hopper, born, December 3D, 1771, ended his pilgrimage, may 7TH, 1852. Thou henceforth shalt have a good man's calm, A great man's happiness; thy zeal shall find Repose at length, firm Friend of human kind.
