" 'This precious book I'd rather own
Than all the golden gems
That e'er in monarchs' coffers shone,
Or on their diadems.

And were the seas one chrysolite,
This earth a golden ball;
And gems were all the stars of night,
This book were worth them all.

 


Sam Jones at age 24

Funeral Service  For Captain T.G Ryman Held At Tabernacle
With 4,000 Persons Present Rev. Sam P. Jones and George Stuart conducting the service "Occasions like this are rare in Nashville. They are rare everywhere. A more representative audience never gathered in Nashville than fills this Tabernacle this afternoon. There is not a life in this city from the highest to the lowest that the life of Capt. Ryman did not touch." Mr. Jones then spoke of the presence of Rev. George R. Stuart, who loved and was loved by Capt. Ryman, stating that Mr. Stuart would be heard. "We are here to pay our tribute of love to one whom so many loved. He was a Christian as were few men I have ever known. A city never gets over the fact of a great man living so humbly, one whose great spirit has been exalted to that blessed home. I say with Brother Jones that I lay the sweetest and the rarest flowers of my heart upon this man's grave.”
