He spoke very beautifully to the comfort and satisfaction of the family. Brother Ross was one of his favorite preachers. Many times I have seen him sit under the sound of his preaching and the tears would fall freely from his eyes. Oh how he feasted on the _____ [remainder, perhaps two lines, unreadable]
