   63. In memory of Mr. Samuel Loring died June 14, 1840, Æt. 86 years.

"For me to live was Christ, and to die is gain."
Patriarch and friend of peace, we seek thy shade in vain,
Yet clings thy memory to the lips of penury and pain,
Thy memory is on the spot, where thy fresh childhood grew,
By living intellect, embalm'd with ever fragrant dew.

   64. In memory of Mrs. Sophronia S. Loring, wife of Abner B. Loring, who died Dec. 20. 1841, aged 25 years.

Ordained to lose the partner of my breast,
Whose virtue warmed me, and whose beauty bless'd,
I yet remember that the parting sigh,
Appoints the good to slumber, not to die,
The starting tear I check; I kiss the rod,
And not to earth resign her; but to God

   65. In memory of Rachel C. Loring, daughter of Samuel and Lucy Loring, born Aug. 4, 1827, died Dec. 19, 1843.

Peace to her dust; for surely peace her gentle spirit knows,
Around her narrow house on earth, the night wind sadly blows,
But heavenly airs, that through the trees of life forever play,
Are breathing on her spirit's brow, to dry her tears away.

   66. Sacred to the memory of Mrs. Elisabeth Loring, who died Dec. 22, 1851, aged 95 years, 4 months.

Life's labor done, as sinks the clay,
Light from its load the spirit flies,
While heaven and earth combine to say,
How blest the righteous when he dies.
