Jessup--In Richmond, Ind. of heart disease, on the evening of 26th of Twelfth month, 1868, Mary Jessup, wife of Levi Jessup, in the 55th year of her age; a beloved member and elder of White Water Monthly Meeting.Whilst cheerfully engaged in her domestic duties, in the presence of her family, she fell to the floor and instantly expired.In her many and varied relations in life, this dear Friend maintained a Christian walk, being "diligent in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord".And we rejoice in the assurance that her day's work was accomplished in the daytime and that she has gone to be "ever with the Lord".During the usual family worship on the morning of the 26th, after the reading of the Scriptures and solemn prayer, in much tenderness and brokenness of spirit she exhorted her family to live so that they might be ready at any time to go and live forever with the Savior; and she pressed upon her children the importance of prayer, and the necessity of repentence and conversion, and closed her exhortation to them in the following words:"I can truly say, dear children, that my greatest concern for a considerable time past has been that I might be ready to go at any moment".Her sorrowing family doubtless recur with comfort to this blessed occasion, and her dear children will accept the solemn words then spoken as their mother's parting legacy "Be ye also ready".
