Such a momentous affair. Who amongst us,~-give me leave to ask, that has the least pretensions to common humanity, would hesi tate for a single moment to perform so gener ous, though painful a duty, as that of carefully attending to the sad expiring 'moments of a departing friend? The duty must be reci procal 'to every benevolent being, as sooner or later, the' dreadful 'trial must be our own. From a sad mistaken humanity, surrounding friends are sometimes apt to persuade the nearest relatives that nothing more can be done for the dying person, and therefore prevent them from performing those kind Offices of closing the eyes, and other marks of attention, which can only be expected from those who are deeply interested. Surely such a bounden duty as this, ought not to be left (as is too often the case) to some wretched mercenary nurse, or_ greedy hireling? Forbid it humanity! I would recommend it to all.
