To the memory of the late Harry P. Vernon, by his Class in the M.E. Sabbath School, Shelbyville, Indiana.
February 18, 1864
Page 3 col 1
Feb. 14th, 1864.
God in his wise providence having seen proper to remove from our midst one of our class-mates, and for many
years a member of this School, it is deemed fitting that his class should pass some resolutions in manifestation
of their respect for the memory of the deceased.
In his late illness, when the world and the things of the world were fast fading before him, he found hope and
consolation in the promises of the Saviour, and calmly surveying the approach of death, he looked beyond its power
to the glorious immortality promised to the believer. "The places that knew him will know him no more,"
but though dead, his memory is embalmed in the hearts of his associates and there it will live until all those
who are taking part in this tribute to his shall have followed him in the journey, where for a brief space he has
preceded us, through the dark valley of the shadow of death.
That his Class in this School, from the high esteem they had for the deceased, do sincerely condole with the bereaved
family who now mourn their loss; and as a proof of their high regard, a few weeks prior to his demise, they elected
him a Life-Member of the Missionary Society of the M.E. Church.
That two members of this Class be selected to communicate these proceedings to his afflicted parents.
J. B. Randall
and A. J. Gorgas were appointed
by the School, and Rev. Thos. Lynch requested a copy that the proceedings might be placed upon the Church
Record. Also, that they be published in each paper of this city, and the Western Christian Advocate.
