Not illustrated. 1843 edition. Excerpt: ...sincere and sympathizing friend, S. G. VVILLIAMS."

The melancholy event will be long remembered, and spoken of with deep feeling. His death was spiritual life to many souls. A simple inscription marks the spot where he lies: "Sacred to the hletnory of Joan Ilowsnn VVILLIAMS, who died Aug. 13, 1836. fEt eighteen years." MAY zuanv PLANTS 01-' PARADISE THERE BLOOM.
