26 your children is a noble name, a perfect life for their copying. Be just; be true. By these acts you will teach all men to do right. "Do as you would be done by." We have finished the task assigned us. May God bless you in your deliberations, and may your deeds invite honorable men to dwell among us; and may your entire constituency be prosperous, happy, wealthy, and God-fearing. "So live, that when thy summons comes To join the innumberable caravan That moves to that mysterious realm Where each shall take his 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 this couch about him, And lies down to pleasant dreams."
