In memory of Comrade Lewis Brayman of Marlboro, late a member of C. B. Lawton Post, G. A. R., who died at his home at Marlboro, Vt., June 3rd, 1896.
Another Comrade has fallen by the wayside and will nevermore stand in our ranks. He has gone to join the mighty army of the dead that lies encamped on the other side of the dark river.
When next we assemble to pay a tribute to the memory of our fallen comrades by placing flowers above their sleeping forms, there will be one more grave to decorate and one less comrade to bear floral offerings.
By and by the last old soldier of the war of the Union will have laid him down to rest, will have passed on to the land of peace where the sound of war ever comes.
We remember Comrade Brayman as one who enlisted early in the Great Conflict, who was a faithful soldier during his term of service, winning the respect and confidence of his comrades in arms and gaining promotion by his soldierly qualities and his attention to every duty.
His death serves as a renewed admonition that we are all born to die, that death is certain and life uncertain; that sooner or later the summons will come to each one of us to give answer to the last roll call.
To the family and friends of the deceased we tender our sincere sympathy and assure them that the hand of fraternity will ever be extended.
We desire the foregoing testimonial to be inscribed upon our records, a copy transmitted to the family of the deceased comrade, and publication made in the DEERFIELD VALLEY TIMES.C. M. Russell
