David HINCHCLIFF (1837-1904) to Elizabeth EDGOOSE (1852-1944)
4 FEBRUARY 1884

"Dear Sister, You no doubt are cognizant of the fact that dear Father has been sick for a long time the other day I received a Letter from Harriett saying she wrote me on Decr. 28th. from Home telling me of his death which took place on the 24th. but somehow I have never received the Letter she tells me he died so happy trusting in Jesus, "Glory to God". And now it is my painful duty to tell you of another one who has been called Home to Glory, having left behind him the sweet testimony that he was on the Lord's side; that our Brother John BALDRY is another one of those who has come out of great tribulation and washed their Robes in the Blood of the Lamb, poor Sister Mary it is a great blow for her, but thank God His Grace is sufficient for each of us, she along with Lizzie is as well as can be expected please write to her a cheering & comforting Letter, in this her great trial as she desired me to inform you of his death on her behalf.
He was took sick on Thursday week Jan. 24th. of pneumonia of the Lungs, with chills & Fever he died yesterday Feb. 2cond. about 11 Oclock A. M. so happy & resigned trusting in our dear Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. Mary tells me he suffered very much during the week but bore it patiently & with Christian fortitude. - She had the same Docter who did not understand dear Alice's disease & now she thinks he did not understand John's either untill Dr. Ross was called in on Wed: last but it was too late then he told them there was no hope of his recovery. The Funeral takes place tomorrow morning at 10 A. M. I must now conclude with best wishes & love for your temporal & spiritual welfare hoping you are trusting in this same Jesus is the sincere prayer of Your ever loving Brother "David"
P.S. Shall be glad to hear from you when convenient DH"
