Thus has passed away one whose loveliness of character endeared her to all associated
with her. An honest, thoughtful child, cherishing the good and abhorring the wrong she
was universally beloved wherever known. Dear little Nellie! The wealth of beautiful
flowers laid upon her casket by the member of her school class, bore testimony of their
appreciation of gentleness and worth. Without murmuring she passed through her long
suffering, and to the end, in her relation as a daughter and a sister, and friend was tender
and loving, and will be missed and mourned by all who know her well.
In memoriam-Charles C. Frost
" A combination and a form, indeed!
Where every god seem to get his seal,
To give the world assurance of a man.
These words of his favorite author fitly portray our noble Charlie. Of a bright, fun-
loving disposition, he yet possessed those sterner qualities, foreign to all save dauntless
spirits, who seem born to conquer. A fine presence, united with great personal magnetism,
attracted innumerable friends all of who in mercantile as well as social circles, join with
us in lamenting a common sorrow. Endowed with superior talents, his brief career
shadowed forth grand possibilities. The counting-house, the crowded street, the busy
mart will know him no more. No longer will the brave young yachtsman gayly glide o'er
the billow of Casco Bay. No longer the hall of the "Warwick's" will re-echo his
melodious voice. All that now remain are love and tears to tell us he hath been. Kissing
away his struggling breath the Death-angel bore our darling to "the undiscovered
country, from whose bourn no traveler return." The cloud is rifted, and from beyond the
stars, a voice is saying: "All is wll," On, widowed mother! They treasures wait thee on the
far-off shore; and God, they God will give them all to thee.
