THOMPSON-Died at his father's residence in Nelsonville, O., on Sunday Sept 7th of Typhoid Fever, Henry Thompson, aged 26 years.
The deceased was a young man of an ordinary worth. His entire life was a noble exemplificiation of Christian principle, and he died sustained by the faith of the Gospel. During his college life, he was distinguished for promptness and faithfulness in duty. He suffered no part of his work to suffer from neglect, but whenever called upon he was found at his post. In him the Ohio University has lost an industrious student, society a useful member, and the church a devoted and efficient servant. But his death has been ... to him: for "prescious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints."
