The opening spring had scarce begun
When sweetest flowers begin to bloom
Ere George’s race was fully run,
And he had found an early tomb!
But let not tears of grief be shed,
Though he was worthy of our love;
For while his dust sleeps with the dead,
His spirit hath its home above.
“Died” – Bullard – “In Greenfield, Saratoga county N.Y. on the 16th inst., Mary A., wife of Calvin Bullard, aged 75 years” - Continues with writing from the children who “express sadness at the loss of our mother, whom we have not seen in 13 long years”.
