Died. In this Borough, on the 11th Miss Lydia T. Adams, aged 10 years and 9 months; and on the 12th inst., Miss Mary A. Adams, aged 26 years and 2 months, both daughters of Jere and Cynthia Adams. The afflictions of this estimable family are great indeed. While death was bearing off the young ladies whose names we have given, Mr. Adams, a darling son, and another loved daughter, were bound to beds of severe and excruciating sickness. Long will the loved forms of the departed live in the fond recollections of numerous friends – long will there be a void in the social circle occasioned by the absence of the elder – and long, very long will the sorrowing school girl muse in sadness over the happy hours spent in company with the younger. But why should we weep at their departure? They died in full, undoubting hope of a blessed immortality in the Spirit-world. No, we should not weep that their mortality might hath put on immortality – that they have exchanged an existence of sorrow, and sadness, for one of unending joy. We should not weep, for Death, to them was not a King of Terror. He was the messenger who bade their sufferings cease, who opened to their view a brighter and better world, where mental anguish and bodily sufferings are unknown (New Star, Troy, Pennsylvania, Saturday morning, November 15, 1845).
