Preston Belcher Obituary
DIED, Juno 3, 18(50, near Abbeville, So. Ca., PRESTON BELCHER, in the nineteenth year of his age. He was a manly youth, an affectionate son and brother, and a warm-hearted friend. He gave promise of becoming an honored and useful citi? zen. All who knew him loved him, and many there are to sympathize deeply with tbe bereaved household. He was spared through the closing scenes of the late war to dio among those who wero dear to him. He fell asleep in Jesus. It was given him to behold the Sinner's Friend, and by faith to stake the salvation of his immortal soul upon the Sa? viour's infinite love and mercy. None ever trusted Him in vain. He is not dead but asleep, and them that sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. Weep not for him. Let his memory be cherished as.of one who has only gone before us, and whom we shall see again; and let the Saviour be adored as the Re? deemer of another of our loved ones. S.
