Adams Papers

From Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams, 28 October 1818

Lines on the death of Mrs. Adams.

Depart thou Sainted Spirit, Wing thy happy flight,

To the bright realms of everlasting light;

Yet fondly hover oer thy lonely friend,

In nightly visions resignation send:

Cheer his great mind attune his Soul to peace

Till in this world his hopeless griefs may cease:

And when his Spirit quits this mortal clay

<Lead him to heavenly bliss and guide him on his way.>

To bliss eternal guide him on his way.

Louisa. C. Adams.
