Resolutions of Respect.
Whereas death has removed from our midst our late brother and friend J.J. Bair of Spencer, and we are thus bereft;

Resolved by the Wellington Chapter of Royal Arch Masons No. 109 that we tender to the widow of Brother Bair our heartfelt sympathy and commend her to the all wise Providence who doeth all things well, and tempers the wind to the ahorn lamb.

Resolved that a copy of these resolutions be published in the papers of our village, and a copy be transmitted to the widow.
