      ON VUOSI KULUNUT KUN HYVÄ ELÄMÄN TOVERINI
      kuoli pitkäakaisen sairauden jälkeen Community Heath Centerissä, Two Harbors, Minn. Hän oli sntynyt Suomessa Längelmäellä-Hämeen Iäänissä malliskuun 11 p. 1881. Lähinnä koipamaan jäin minä hänen vaimonsa ja kasvatti tytär Ruth perheineen.

      Oli kohtalon kullku niin jumma, läpi myrskyjen kulki sun ties. Kyllä aavistit jo hetkeä ennen ett' sydämesi loppuum lyö.
      Vaijeten kärsit tuskien taakan sydän uupunyt levon sai. Nyt rauhan kuitenkin löytänyt olet lepää rauassa, toveri rakas.
      VAIMOSI IDA NIEMI Brimson, Minnesota
