Morse - 12 years 1876 by his Saboth School Superintendent S. J. Pierson Funeral card inserted: 3 X 4, shiny, smooth card stock.--Opens like a book. Cover has a double border of gray and black with a picture of an anchor in a hilly field of flowers, with a boat anchor lodged in the ground -- background shows various boats in a harbor and the words 'In Memoriam' Inside page this verse: A sudden change dear friends, upon me fell, I had not time to bid you all farewell. Think nothing strange, death happens unto all My lot's today, tomorrow yours may fall. God calling yet! I cannot stay. My heart I yield without delay. Vain world farewell! from thee I part. The voice of God has reached my heart. Next page: In Affectionate Remembrance of Wiliam Bayliss who died at Stonefield June 2nd, 1896 In the 72nd year of his age Not lost but gone forever Back cover: Plain, just the double border and the tiny print "M 34" in the lower right corner. No mention of a funeral director or place of burial....... with the front design I take it that his ship (Life) has been anchored.
