Resolution

Whereas, God in his infinite wisdom has called our beloved brother, S.M. King, from life unto death;

Whereas, Mr. King was for a number of years a faithful member and officer in the First Presbyterian Church in Gainesville;

Be it resolved by the official board of said church:

First:  That we bow in humble submission to Him to doeth all things well;

Second:  That we extend heartfelt sympathy to his bereaved family;

Third:  That these resolutions be spread on the minutes of this body and also that a copy of the same be mailed to his family.

 

                                      Very respectfully submitted:

                                      H.O. McCain

                                      W.W. Leverett
