Excerpt from Addresses on the Occasion of the Death of the Hon. Robert R. Reed, a Representative From the County of Washington: Delivered in the Senate and House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, January 4, 1865
The sad and unexpected event has caused the pro foundest sorrow in the community where he lived and was much beloved, and, indeed, all over the western portion Of the State, where he was widely known and universally esteemed. The death of a good man is a public calamity. It creates a void in society difficult to be filled. It comes home to our hearts with a thrill of sorrow, for we know how sadly we shall miss him. In every sphere Of life and usefulness in which he has moved he will be missed, and in every relationship which he has stood towards us. We meet no more the intelligent and courteous gentleman - the kind and accommodating neighbor - the generous, warm-hearted friend - the useful, trustworthy, and public spirited fellow-citizen - the benevolent and whole-souled philan thropist - and the earnest, sincere, and steadfast Christian man and brother. All these characters united we have lost in him whose memory I desire to honor, and on whose bier I would seek to throw a farewell Chaplet of love.
