Adelia L. Foster

DIED, -- At Crown Point, Ind., on Thursday, May 24th, Miss Adelia L. Foster, in the 26th year of her age. Her disease inflammation of the bowels, accompanied with fever of a highly typhoid character.

Miss F. was born near Bridgewater, Susquehanna county, Penn. She early gave her heart to the Savior, and was united with the Baptist church at the age of fourteen, from which time until her death she honored her profession by a consistent, christian life.

Her parents, with a large family of interesting children, came, last fall, to spend the evening of their days in our western country. She was a beloved member of the household and they sensibly and deeply feel the loss.

She was active and zealous in the service of God -- in the Sabbath-School, the Bible-Blass, the Female Prayer-meeting, and in every good work; especially in looking after the welfare of the younger members of the family, and in her attention upon the sick; often at great self-sacrifice.

We have scarcely ever known an individual, in so short a time, acquire such universal respect and esteem as as possessed by our departed young friend.

The funeral services were attended by a large concourse of citizens, many of whom very sensibly feel her loss.

The righteous have hope in their death.
