ON THE DEATH OF PAST MASTER DR. H. F. SMITH


To the Worshipful Master, Wardens, and Brothers of Lee Lodge No. 30 of Free and Accepted Masons: The undersigned having been appointed at a special communication held on the 28th day of January, a committee to prepare and report resolutions on the death of Bro. H. F. Smith, ask leave to submit the following:

WHEREAS: It having pleased Divine Providence to remove from our midst, Bro Henry F. Smith formerly Master of the Lodge, at all times as an earnest colaborer with us in its welfare, and whereas this sad affliction has come to us and the family of the deceased as unexpectedly as it was sudden, having been stricken in the prime of life and vigor of manhood without admonition or warning.

RESOLVED---that this Lodge tender to the family and friends of the deceased their sincere and heartfelt sympathy in this their bereavement, that while they have lost a devoted, affectionate husband, father, and son we have lost the advice, counsel and and assistance of a true friend and worthy Brother, one to whom the lodge is largely indebted for its prosperity and stability

RESOLVED---In token of the honorable esteem in which which we cherish his memory, and as an expression of our deep grief, that the jewels and furnishings of the Lodge be clothed in mourning for the space of one year.

RESOLVED: that the Secretary of the Lodge is hereby instructed to transmit to the family of our deceased Brother a copy of the preamble and resolutions above, and cause the same to be recorded in the proceedings of the Lodge. Also a copy sent to the Rutland papers for publication. .
