poor condition of the paper copy, several words are missing from the
newspaper text. The words come from "Thanatopsis" by William Cullen
So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan, which moves
To that mysterious realm, where each shall take
The chamber in the silent halls of death
Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.
