[Hannah]: For all of us to remember...

I'm currently helping a professor by reading through the letter-books of the Boston merchant John Hull who lived in the late 17th century. Mostly these are letters about business, debts owed, ships, and the like, but I liked what he wrote to his cousin, mourning the loss of another relation (I don't know if it's a quote, or what):
"May the Lord teach you and us, by all the changes that pass over us, to be fitted more for an unchangeable Estate."
