The Life of Thomas Eddy; Comprising an Extensive Correspondence

Page out of 347

Mr. Eddy

left a widow, a son, and two daughters,
to mourn his loss, and to cherish his memory. Mrs.
died the summer of 1832. She fell a victim to
that scourge of the human raceā€”the cholera. She
was a virtuous woman, highly respected by all who
knew her. She was a helpmate to her spouse, as
far as was proper for her sex, in all his labours of
philanthropy. The silent unobtrusive course of a
good wife, has a wonderful influence on the charac-
ter and fame of her husband.
