DEPARTED THIS LIFE on the 3rd September 1852, Mrs. Robert HART Senior, aged 72 years, after a severe affliction, borne with Christian resignation about 20 years - the last few years helpless as an infant – and a firm faith in her Redeemer, with whom I trust her soul is now enjoying all the blessings of redeeming love.
She has left a disconsolate husband, after a happy union of 48 years 5 months, and a numerous family and circle of friends to lament a loss which, notwithstanding her bodily helplessness, they acutely feel.
