Newspaper published in: Little Rock, AR
At New Iberia, La., on the 27th ult., after a painful and lingering illness, Mrs. Clarisse E., consort of Roswell Beebe, Esq., of this city, aged 32 years. The deceased, greatly enfeebled in health, left our city a short time since, hoping that the genial influence of a more southern climate, might prove successful in arresting the course of a disease, which in spite of all the efforts of medical skill, seemed slowly progressing to a fatal termination. The change of scene incident to travel, for a time seemed to promise the realization of the hopes of her numerous friends; but alas! the fiat had gone forth - and Death claimed its victim.
By the decease of this estimable lady, society is called upon to deplore the loss of one of its brightest ornaments; numberless ties of friendship and affection have severed; and grief, almost inconsolable, is caused weigh heavily upon the hearts of her kindred. In every relation of life, the virtues of the deceased were conspicuous. As a steadfast friend, devoted wife, and affectionate mother, her loss is irreparable. "May He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," watch over and protect those, who by the dispensation of His providence, have been deprived of the kind influences of a mother's tender care; and while her kindred and friends are called upon to bow submissively to this affliction, may they find consolation in the belief, that a world of suffering has been exchanged for a blessed state of immortality on high.
