-------
On Friday Morning April 22d, departed this Life, in the 50th year of her age, Mrs. Mary Bridgham, the amiable Consort of the Rev. Mr. James Bridgham, of Brimfield.
     Mrs. Bridgham was a Person of superior understanding and discernment, of a sweet obliging natural disposition, which being improved by eminent degrees of divine Grace, engaged the love and esteem of all her Acquaintances.
     The particular Relations which she sustained of a Wife, a Mother, a Mistress, a Neighbour and a Friend, she discharged with a Grace and Propriety that is hardly to be equalled "she opened her Mouth with Wisdom, and in her Tongue was the law of Kindness."  At __greatest remove from all appearance of Vanity and Ostentation, she was in illustrious example of Modesty and Humbleness of mind.  Her "adorning was not that outward adorning of plating the Hair, and of wearing of Gold, and of putting on of Apparel, but the hidden Man of the Heart, even the ornament of the meek and quiet Spirit." - Her last Sickness which was long and distressing, she bore with remarkable Christian Patience appeared to be, by the Faith of the Son of God," so her latter End was Peace,  she finished her course with Joy, in confident hope of a glorious Immortality. - The Monday following, she was carried into the Meeting-house at Brimfield, where an excellent Sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Ephraim Ward of Brookfield, from Philippians' the first Chapter, 21st verse "For me to live is Christ, and to die is Gain," after which she was interred in the Burial Place there.
     Daughters of Eve, -
     Feel with what Force the bright Example shines,
     She was, what you should be -
