James Heighe Blake
[Add Flowers]
Dr. James H. Blake, 
In this city, at 3 o'clock yesterday morning, after a painful and tedious indisposition of fourteen months, Doctor James H. Blake, in the 52d year of his age.Of the character of one so well known, it is almost superfluous to speak. But to those who knew him not, we may be permitted to say, that he was one of our worthiest and most respected citizens. He was a native of Calvert county, in Maryland, dwelt some years in Virginia, and for ten years past has resided in this city. In private life, in the relations of father, husband, & friend, he was an ornament of society, and a bright example to all around him. In public life, he had successively filled the offices of Magistrate in Virginia, and in the District of Columbia. He was a Representative in the Legislature of Virginia, whilst he lived there. He was several years Mayor of the City of Washington, and part of the time also Collector of Internal Revenue. At the time of his decease he held the office of Register of Wills for Washington county. He has left a distressed consort and family of children to mourn the loss of their dearest friend; a bereavement, however, which the long, painful, and wasting illness which afflicted the deceased, must have gradually prepared their minds to encounter.The friends and acquaintances of the deceased are respectfully invited to attend his funeral, at 10 o'clock this morning, from his late dwelling, without further notice.Those Masonic Brethren who may not have received special notice are informed that a meeting of the fraternity will take place at the room of the Grand Lodge, this morning, at 9 o'clock, for the purpose of making the necessary arrangements for interring the remains of their deceased Brother with Masonic honors.
