THEREFORE be it resolved by Lancaster I.O.O.F Lodge Number 200 that we express to our brother Moore and his family our sincere sympathies and condolence, and asked that our words shall become a source of real comfort to them.

Be it further RESOLVED that these resolutions be further spread on the minutes of our Lodge and that a copy be sent Brother Moore and his family, and a copy be furnished to the LANCASTER HERALD for publication.
