Presidents II. M. Hanson and (i. S. Haitian dwelt upon the excellent trajts of character Sister Brown must have possessed to train and rabe her children in the fear of God without a husband's assistance. She was always ready and willing to comfort "those' who were, despondent and said, and was a friend in very deed to ail. "O my Father, Thou that .dwelkst" was played upon the mandolin and guiur by Miss Illa Hunt and Mr.Bennie Robison. Counselors Nancy Blackburn and Kliza-betC. Jeffrey, of the Reliel Society, spoke words of encouragement, and praised Sister Brown for her true integrity. Beautiful and appropriate music was rendered by her children, Bb,hop Brown and wife.ind Mrs.. Sheffield. President Robison thought reunions of this nature promoted a . feeling ol juve to draw us together and to elevate and broaden our views in our sphere of usefulness. He was- pleased to be associated with a woman "like Sister Brown, who had fearlessly stood in defence of the principles of truth, the Gospel in its purity taught her and gone through many trials to serve the tw'enty-fivLord; and during the-pyears he knew she bad sought the: best society, and .was profld to have hei for a friend. Felt tlnrt her actions w ould meet the reward of again being associated with her husband, who has been dead for many ; years. Sister Robisou thanked all for the great honor shown her; felt it was more than, she was worthy of. Asked G od to bless all those present, that they might do good 011 the earth.
