DIED. McLEOD-- Little Mamie, daughter of P.M. and F.K. McLeod, Sept. 16, 1898 aged four years, eight months and thirteen days.
Dear Mamie was taken from her home of love,
And carried to dwell in that world above.
Oh! God has taken our child so dear,
And left with us that trouble to bear.
But alas! alas! the day will come,
When we all will be called home,
And then we'll dwell on that blissful shore,
Where peace and happiness are forevermore.
'Tis useless to grieve--our darling is gone,
Although it is hard to bear;
But I, like others that have been born,
My part of the trouble must share.
Written by her mother, F.K. McLeod, October 4, 1898
