Funeral of Ellis Gray Loring

A Memorable Funeral occurred during Anniversary week; that of Ellis Gray Loring, a man to whose refined and solid worth, no eulogy can do justice.  He died suddenly of pleurisy, on the 24th ult., and his funeral took place at 4 P.M. on the 26th.  He was connected with Rev. James Freeman Clarke’s Society, who gave an appropriate address, and was followed worthily by Hon. Josiah Quincy, Jr.  The death of such a man is sorrowful to the bereaved, but glorious and blessed to himself.  Like thousands, besides his intimate friends, we have personal reasons to revere his memory.  – Practical Christian
