    • Clara E., youngest daughter of Albert Morse, died Thursday noon, of lingering consumption. She was in her 26th year, and a young lady of fine ability and much promise. Miss Morse was highly educated, and taught school for over 8 years, until sickness compelled her to relinquish its duties. Everything that love and money and skill could do was unselfishly applied to arrest the fatal progress of her disease; but in vain. Her pleasant, genial nature made very many friends, who, with the afflicted relatives, mourn her loss. Funeral services are to held tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. [4]

    • Funeral of Miss Clara Morse - On Sunday morning last, relatives and friends of the deceased assembled at her father's residence in Cleveland, between nine and ten o'clock, preparatory to the funeral services and burial at Bernhards' Bay. The Sabbath morning quiet was favorable; a prayer was offered by Rev. D. Marvin, Jr., and then the procession started. A very large number of people, neighbors and friends of the family, were gathered together at the Hall, and the exercises were mainly as follows: The first hymn was given out and sung by the choir, prayer followed, and then the reading of suitable passages of Scripture from both Old and New testaments. Mr. Marvin preached the funeral sermon from the following text taken from the following text taken from the Second Epistle of Peter, 2d chapter, 11th verse: "For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." The drift of the sermon was to show the provision that God has made for our happiness in the future. At the close of the sermon there was an allusion to the early life, and long illness, and religious profession of the deceased, and a regret, in which many sympathized, that an interesting life, which was surrounded by so many things, make it desirable and happy, should be taken away by death. Tears were shed by many who had long loved and respected Clara, and who where sad to part from her. Rev. Samuel Dickinson then made some very feeling remarks, after which the choir sang the hymn -- "Beyond the smiling and the weeping I shall be soon." After viewing the remains, a large procession formed in front of the Hall, and walked to the cemetery, where the burial was had, the closing religious services being performed by the two ministers named above.
