Excerpt from Memorial Addresses on the Life and Character of Oliver P. Morton, (a Senator From Indiana, ): Delivered in the Senate and House of Representatives, January 17 and 18, 1878 O Lord, our God, help us all, Thy servants, to recognize and humbly to submit in this event to Thy righteous will. May the Congress and the nation together be sensible of Thy dealing, and when Thou comest nigh to us in cutting off men from the face of the earth may we come nigh to Thee in loving confidence and filial trust, and in the ordering of our obedience to fulfill Thy pleasure. O Lord, our God, we are all in Thy hands to do with us as Thou wilt. Be very gracious unto us and help us. Regard the cry of those who grieve in the bitterness of sorrow. Assuage all the anguish of loving hearts. Be merciful to the widow and the fatherless. Lift up this nation to a higher life of fortitude and virtue by the bereavements and the disasters we experience, so that light may come forth out of darkness, so that good may prevail over evil, and so that Thy saving help may be kwn among all nations. Through Jesus Christ. Amen.Mr. Mcdonald. Mr. President: It becomes my painful duty to anunce to the Senate of the United States the death of my late colleague, Oliver P. Morton, of Indiana. He died at his family residence in the city of Indianapolis yesterday afteron at half-past five o'clock. The funeral sendees and burial will take place on Monday the 5th of this month, at the city of his late residence.
