Sylvester A. WILSON departed this life at 9 a.m., May 2nd at Festus. He
was bedfast with lung disease since January 29th, and ??? in bad heath
for some time previous. His last three months were days of suffering,
which he ???? with rare patience, finding, as he reportedly said, more
comfort in prayer than in all else, in which he spent much of his time
for himself, his beloved wife and aged parents, cheering them and
directing them to Christ and heaven as the only home. He was ????? with
untiring effort an devotion by his wife and people, who now morn his
loss, but rejoice in th e assurance that he is free from pain, at home
with God. He took a clear-minded ????? from all a few hours before he
died, and asked them to meet him in heaven, where he would remember
them until they come. He and ???? joined the Presbyterian church about
three months ago, and gave evidence of sincerity and trust in God in
his affliction. May God abundantly comfort and support his afflicted
companion, who rejoices in the assurance of meeting him and their child
gone before, where sickness and sorrow are not known. A Friend.
