Hickok-- Died, on Thursday, June 25, of typhoid fever, after an illness of seven weeks, Hadasseh [sic] A., youngest daughter of J. E. and O. L. Hickok, aged 4 years and 5 months.
There has passed away one of the Savior's dear little lambs. She was truly a lovely and amiable child, but we will not mourn her loss; for she now walketh the pearly streets, and weareth the golden crown in the New Jerusalem.
High Prairie, June 26, 1874
We lay thee in the silent tomb,Sweet blossom of the day; We just began to view that bloom,When thou art called away. Friendship and love have done their lastAnd now can do no more; The bitterness of death is past, And all thy sufferings o'er. Thy gentle spirit passed away 'Mid pain the most severe; So great, we could not wish they stay A moment longer here. Oh! who could wish thy longer stay In such a world as this? Since thou hast gained the realms of day, And pure undying bliss.
