Whereas, He was for nearly a quarter of a century connected with the work and the history of the Texas Legislature, touching it at all points from Clerk in the Senate to Speaker of the House, leaving behind him as a legislator an imperishable name, and bequeathing to posterity some of the best laws ever written in the statutes of the State; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, in Special Session assembled, That this body laments his death as a legislative loss, and that in his going Texas witnessed the departure of one of her most unselfish and distinguished sons, and that the people of the State were deprived of the labors of a loyal and efficient public servant, and humanity was robbed of a faithful friend; and be it further

Resolved, That when the Senate adjourns today it do so out of respect to his life and labors, that we extend to his loving wife and devoted brothers, in their bereavement, our sincerest sympathy; that they be furnished a copy of this resolution, and that a page of the Senate Journal be set aside as a memorial to his honored and loved memory.

Signed-Real, Astin, Bailey of Harris, Watson, Conner, Gibson, Cowell, Lattimore, Nugent, Johnson, Taylor, Westbrook, Warren, Brelsford, Greer, Harley, Terrell, McNealus, Darwin, Bailey of DeWitt, Carter, Wiley, Hall, Townsend, Collins.
