Whereas, Our comrade, A. K. Sykes has been summoned through the mystery of death into the presence of the Supreme Commander, again reminding us not withstanding the strong ties which bind us together, we must submit to the Great Commander.

Whereas, We bow in humble submission to the decree, yet we feel a sense of sadness as one by one of our number are called to obey the edict, and pass the portals of the unseen world, and visibly from our presence, but with hope that theirs is a glorious happiness; be it,

Resolved, That we as surviving soldiers of the war, and members of Wm. J. Fuller Post, No. 52, G. A. R., do mourn the loss of our comrade, that we tender our earnest sympathy to his family, that our colors and altar be draped for the space of thirty days, in memory of the husband and father and our comrade. That this resolution be published in the county paper, entered in our records, and a copy furnished the widow of the deceased.

C. M. Lincoln, John Fisher, Geo. H. Williams, Committee.
