If truth devine your lives controls
Abounding Grace will save your souls.

Below is a clipping from a newspaper on a back page.
Sophia Michie, infant daughter of M. M. and Emily a. Lacy,was born March 4, 1859 and died June 24, 1869.

It was hard for doating parents to give up an only daughter,but they bowed with true Christian Submission, and surrendered their darling Sophia into the hands of Him who
said, "Suffer little children to come unto me."

"His words the happy parents hear, and shout with joy divine, 'O, Saviour, all we have and are Shall be for ever thine"
