“Somewhere near, a passing bell was tolling.”

“The ‘passing bell,’ to be heard in certain districts of rural England, within living memory, and possibly not yet wholly extinct, was interpreted by the people as a reminder to pray for the soul of the neighbor who was passing away.”
- From _An Aid for Churchmen Episcopal and Orthodox Toward a Mutual Understanding, by Means of a Brief Comparison of the Rites and Ceremonies of the Orthodox Church with those of the Episcopal (Anglican Church)_, by Rev. H. Henry Spoer, 1930. (http://anglicanhistory.org/orthodoxy/spoer1930/09.html)
