About Annie Potter

Excerpts from letters and diary of O.B. Potter:

But such a little family could hardly escape sorrow, and on January 25th, 1861, little Annie died. It was a very hard blow as these letters show and this entry: The saddest Sabbath of my life. Last Sabbath with my dear little daughter Martha I rode to church and all at home were in comparative health save a slight indisposition of little Annie from teething as all supposed. Alas, what a change a week has made. Annie is in the tomb.

Letter from O.B. Potter to his brother after death of his daughter Annie. Written as recorded:

Our dear little Annie died Friday the 25th at 51/2 A. M. A more lovely or promising child we never saw. She combined in herself the most remarkable intellect and moral traits. . . . She, young as she was, directed rather than followed, and yet in so doing drew to herself the affections of all the family to a most remarkable degree, and lived her whole short life in an atmosphere of manifest love. She died as she lived, self reliant, unmurmuring and calm. Calling, when her voice had failed, for what she desired with triumphant and most expressive gestures, and never failing to signify that she quite understood. . . . God has taken her as He sent her to us. On earth she was a sweet, pure, priceless gift from Heaven, and in her eternal home may she prove an attraction to all the dear companions she has left behind in this "vale of tears" and temptations. Her life, so short, was all meekness, all love, all purity, a fitting germ of eternal progress and eternal happiness in the presence and .smile of her Heavenly Creator. You will pardon me I know, I cannot trust myself when speaking of this sweet: child. Our little circle is broken to human sense, but not so in reality. . . . Heaven grant this first sweet link in Heaven may draw all other links to itself. Our little Martha has the same terrible disease and has suffered a relapse. We hope now that in her case the worst is past. The disease is not yet developed in any of our other children and our prayer is that the Destroying Angel may drop no more deadly shafts among us now.

In some way the children all contracted diphtheria, at that time an obscure disease. Martha nearly died, Frederick and Mary were very ill.

Letter for Benjamin Wiley to his daughter:

Dearly Beloved Martha and all that belong to you: My heart is greatly grieved and I feel truly to sympathize with all of you in the loss of dear little Anny, to think I can never see her pleasant form on earth fills my breast with sorrow, but when I think that none of the ills of human life can reach her any more—no, for Jesus said Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven—when I think of her in the arms of such a friend and in the society of Heaven I cannot refrain from thinking she is by the side of your blessed Mother. .. . I have left the Baptist Meeting altogether in the place since I returned from New York, and have every mark of respect shown me by the Congregationalist I could ask and am received as a Brother which makes my life extremely happy.
