I.

example worthy of universal imitation. II. As brothers-in-arms with him, in a cause dearer to his loyal soul than life itself, we mourn him as in a special sense our dead, and tender his bereaved family our heartful sympathy in the great sorrow which, by the will of God, has come upon them and us. III. We know that he has left us for a higher sphere, yet the aroma of his life work remains and the memory of his many virtues will, in the future as in the past, incite our ardent emulation and keep alive in us the hope of meeting him in that land— Where loyal hearts and true Stand ever in the light, All rapture through and through, In God's most holy sight. Resolved, That this memorial be spread upon the minutes of the Society, and copies of it be sent to his family, and to the Southern Reveille and the Port Gibson News; and that it be published in the records of the Southern Historical Society.
