Reid, late of Launceston, aged 17 years, after a very short illness. Deeply regretted. IN MEMORIAM.   My poor boy's gone, we'll see no more,   Aud many a friend has missed him ;   His mother, dear, was miles away,   Who, how dearly, had caressed him. His smile was gone from his dear face, His father for to see ;   The hour of life had passed away, With those he wished to be.     My boy was loved by all his friends, And many a tear was shed ;   His mother and sister were miles away,   With both their aching heads.   Inserted by his loving father, G. Allen, Ridgly.
