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 -
