Margaret, eldest daughter of Col. Thomas Wright, of "Church Farm," was a lovely, companionable girl, and married Mr. Samuel W. Thomas, who owned a pretty "old home" called "Springfield," which had been the dwelling place of his ancestors for generations, opposite "Cloverfields," the Forman mansion. She did not long enjoy the pleasures of married life, having fallen a victim to consumption; also, Mary Nicholson, who was named for her grandmother, the wife of the third Darby Lux and one of my most intimate friends in my youth, was a pure-minded winning girl. The soft, appealing expression of her beautiful dark eyes, her serene manners, her tender solicitude for her family, her patience and endurance night and day in administering to her elder invalid brother, who lingered and suffered patiently for months, are still vivid in my mind. Sweet to me is the recollection of my faithful friend and cheerful companion, "dear Mary." She now lives in the beautiful "land beyond the sea." There she smiles as sweetly as in life and sings tenderly to her earthly friends.
"'Waste no tears; I only sleep.' I am waiting for the loved ones I have left for a time;I have gone to the land of rest. 'I see the bright sun touch the hill-tops surrounding,' And mark each new beauty that smiles as I pass; My thoughts liuger 'long' o'er life's golden embers, for sweet is the memory, dear friend of my youth."
