The death of William T. Hall from Old Fulton NY Post Cards
To the innumerable friends that the late William T. Hall possesses it is a matter of deep regret that in the midst of his busy life he found so little time to devote to literary work-a field of artistic endeavor for which he seemed peculiarly and brilliantly suited. In the work that he did in that direction he showed genius of a very high order, and his friends believe that had he been able to devote himself seriously to writing he might easily have become one of the foremost of American humorous authors of the period. As it was, he bestowed his best energies upon the affairs of the police court in which he was magistrate, and, in recent years at least, he regarded his literary work as merely a pastime. During the years that he spent in journalism he proved himself a keen observer of life, a sympathetic recorder of human events, and a master of English. His articles published in the several Chicago papers with which he was connected were remarkable examples of fine literary perception linked with a genuine democratic feeling of brotherhood with those of whom he wrote. He was humorous, but never cruelly satirical. His pen, However brilliant, was invariable charitable. The man who was the butt of his jests always laughed with him. He himself laughed with people and never at them.
