The little life was brief, but it was long enough to win completely the tenderest love of its fond parents. It seems a pity to see the sweet little body laid away so soon, but God knows best and He makes no mistakes.
To the parents we should say, live to meet that sweet child at the feet of Jesus. God had a purpose in taking it away, it may be to make heaven dearer to you. The little baby hands are beckoning you to come. [poem follows]
The parents have the prayers of those who pray, and the sympathies of all in their behalf. -A. S. J. Haygood, Tulsa, I.T., January 24, 1900. Tulsa Democrat Newspaper, 26 Jan 1900, Pg 2, col 4
