Like his brother seven months before; like his sister, seven days after; like the little one is whom we had given his names, he was to be on the Sabbath, with the calm of the eternal Sabbath filling his breast. He was carried to Nashville and tenderly nursed by faithful men. Only two incidents of his dying hours have reached us Calling for one of his manuscript books, he took a pencil, and, with trembling hand, feebly wrote these words " Feb. 18, 1862, Sunday--I die content and happy, trusting in the merits of my Saviour, Jesus, committing my wife and children to the Father and mine. Dabney Carr Harrison Precious legacy of love and prayer! Precious testimony of faith and blessedness! When he felt that death was just upon his, he gathered up his remaining strength one more effort.
