CRADLE -- ALTAR -- TOMB.
Little Florence, the idol of a mother's heart and the pride of a father's affections, has fallen into eternal sleep in its mother's arms and its pure spirit has gone to realms above. We pause to shed a tear and migle our sorrow with the great grief of the parents who in this hour of distress so deeply enlist our sympathy.
