4 Feb 1885


SPLEAN -- At her residence on South Walnut street, last night, MRS. ELIZABETH SPLEAN, in the fifty-second year of her age.

Hark! they whisper angels say,
"Sister spirit, come away,"
Whit is this absorbs me quite,--
Steals my senses, shuts my sight,
Crowns my spirits, draws my breath?
Tell me, my soul! can this be death?

The world recedes--it disappears;
Heaven opens on my eyes; my ears
With sounds seraphic ring;
Lend, lend young wings! I mount, I fly!
O Grave! Where is thy victory?
O Death! Where is thy sting?
