Mr.
Henry Bennett
of Charlestown
dies
March 11, 1840
Æ 29.

O Henry dearest to my heart
Say must I, could I with thee part
Must death dissolve those Heavenly bands
Which bound our souls in distant lands
O Savior take my brother home
Tho’ I am left alone to roam
I’ll often to his tomb appear
And wet it with a falling tear.
