"On Saturday morning the 11th inst. Margaret, the wife of Mr. Samuel LEWTHWAITE, stone-mason, of this city, aged 38. She lived and died an honour to her Christian profession; and approved herself a useful member of the Christian society with which she was connected. In addition to a faithful discharge of her domestic and relative engagements she was concerned with her pious partner to 'walk in all the ordinances and commandments of the Lord blamelessly.' She was called to suffer much affliction for several months previous to her decease. But she was assisted to endure it with Christian patience and resignation. It appeared evident that by her sufferings she was gradually meetened for celestial bliss. The divine promises supported her mind; and she rejoiced in the full assurance of hope. The very last sentence she was heard to utter was the cheering anticipation of the Apostle in Rom. 8. 18. Her body was indeed committed to the grave 'in the full and certain hope of a happy resurrection to eternal life.' May her surviving friends recollect and imitate whatever was in her truly excellent and good! Thus shall they 'be followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises!' "
