WHEREAS, A venerable brother, who in other years occupied a prominent and official position in this body, has fallen asleep in Jesus since its last meeting; and,

WHEREAS, His advanced age, his pure life and eminent services as a minister of Christ warrant this mention of his departure; therefore,

RESOLVED, That this Convention record its appreciation of the life and work of the venerable Adiel Sherwood, who died in St. Louis, Mo., in August, 1879, in the 86th year of his age, and that, while we bless God for the testimony borne by his life and death to the principles and power of the Gospel, we cherish his memory as a precious heritage.
