Resolutions of Condolence

 WORTHY MASTER: – Your committee appointed to report resolutions expressing the sentiments of the Grange in regard to Brother Robert Nichols, late member of our order, who by a sudden and severe stroke was changed from the fullness of life and health to the cold stillness of death in a very few minutes, beg to submit the following:

Brother Robert Nichols was born in the State of New York: was at the time of his death which occured on the evening of the nineteenth of May, 1877, about fifty-three years of age has been connected with the Masonic Fraternity about twenty-five years; has resided in Baker county fourteen years, immediately previous to his death, during which time he won to himself many friends by reason of his being possessed of a kind and benevolent heart. He was one of the charter members of the Grange and was ever a true and faithful member, always prompt at his post of duty and his last work on earth was a labor of love in arranging this hall for the meeting that convened within two weeks after he left its gates, to return once more. he also but a short time previous to his dewath experienced a hope in the promises of revealed religion, and expressed the same by uniting with the M.E. Church.

In view of the mahy good qualities possessed by our departed brother, we present the following resolutions for your adoption:
Resolved, That in the death of Brother Robert Nichols this Grange has lost a worthy member who was dear to us all; society, an example of benevolence and uprightness; and his afflicted relatives, one who was every way worthy of their highest esteem and tenderest regards.

Resolved, That Wingville Grange sincerely cherish his memory and lament his departure from us, and extend, with deepest affection, our heartfelt sympathies to his bereaved relatives.

This report was received and it was further ordered by the Grange that it be entered in full in the records of the Grange, and that a copy be transmitted to the MOUNTAIN SENTINEL for publication.
