Lewiston Teller
Lewiston, Idaho, August 2, 1888


Mounce - In Tammany, at the residence of Isaac Mounce, on Wednesday, July 25, '88, Erwin E. only son of Ebon and Callie Mounce, aged one year and six days.

After a few days of suffering with that dreadful disease - tubercular meningitis - the silver cord of life was broken and the spirit returned to God. Funeral services were conducted by the writer, on Thursday at 11 A.M. after which the remains were transferred to the Lewiston cemetery.

Go to thy rest, fair child;
Go to thy dreamless bed,
While yet so gentle, undefiled, With blessings on thy head,

Ere sin hath seared thy breast,
Or sorrow waked the tear,
Rise to thy throne of changeless rest,
In yon celestial fear.

Because thy smile was fair,
Thy lip and eye so bright,
Because thy loving cradle car,
Was such a dear delight.

C. C. Gibson, Lewiston, Idaho, July, 30 '88
