Died at Barclaysville, Harnett County, on the 7th instant, Mrs. Mildred Barclay, aged 84 years.
Mrs. Barclay's house was for more than forty years the welcome resting place of the weary traveler.
She was truly an excellent woman. There are thousands who remember her kind attention to their wants,
and her unwearied efforts to render their sojourn with her pleasant and agreeable. She was one of the
best neighbors. She has descended to the grave full of years, regretted and mourned by her family and
many friends. The writer of this is not informed as to her spiritual condition during the illness that
preceded her death; but it may be safely concluded that such a woman lived with reference to the great
change that awaits us all, and that she had made the needful preparation for her departure.
