At a special meeting of the Ladies' Library Association, July 24th, 1875, the followiug paper was submitted : One of those occasions has come to us when the providence of God speaks to us in such emphatic terms as to compol us to pause and listen. In the death of our dear fnend and co" laborer, Miss Mary Clark, we recognize 8uch an eveut. Ever ready by her wise counsels and hearty co-operation to second every effort for the prosperity of this association, she spared no paíns to promote its succesa. She studied its welfare, aud in her its officers ever found sympathy and support. Taken so suddenly trom our midst, we mourn for her as a rare example of fidelity to all the duties of life, private, social, and religious, and of whatsoever is lovely and of good report. A ready defender of the truth and advocate of ail p ure and right principies, she was quick to discern any departure from such principies, and Irom that high toued delicacy which so well befits womau. In these days of free manners, she shone conspicuous for her purity of life, and the exalted opiuions she entertamed, which belong to au age tast passing away. Bepiesenting the Ladies' Library Association, of which she was a life meinber, the Board of Directora tender their heartfelt aympathy to her sisters aud family m this hour of bereavement. Resolved, That the above be accepted and priuted in each of the city papers ; also that a copy be sent to the family.
