Obituary

At a regular meeting of Ethan Allen Engine Co., No. 4, held Monday evening, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:

Whereas, It has pleased an all-wise Providence to remove from our midst by death George A. French, late a member of the company, therefore,

Resolved, That in his death not only has this Company lost a valuable and faithful member, but the community has been deprived of one whose intellectual ability, fine social qualities, and nobleness of soul, commanded the admiration and respect of all who knew him.

Resolved, That we tender to the family and relatives of our deceased friend our most sincere and heartfelt sympathy and condolence in this their bout of affliction, and that as a mark of respect to his memory, our hall be draped with suitable badges of mourning for the next four weeks.

Resolved, That the Clerk be directed to communicate a copy of these resolutions to the family of our deceased friend, and that they be furnished for publication to the local papers.
