  2. 2.0 2.1 Sabbath Recorder.

    "In Berlin, Rensselaer Co., NY, March 21st, 1865, of typhoid pneumonia, after an illness of two weeks, DAVID POTTER, aged 57 years. Bro. Potter was an esteemed member of the Seventh-day Baptist Church of Berlin, and of the community in which he lived. In his death, a chord has been touched which vibrates through a large circle of friends, but more sensibly through the hearts of the members of his own family and numerous relatives. Prostrated at the first attack, he was convinced that the time of his departure was at hand. And, having set his house in order, he often spoke confidently of what was about to take place, in the impressive language of going home."
