THE NEW YORK TIMES
Death of William C. Gilman, Esq.
Published: July 26, 1863
The following is an extract from the minutes of the Board of Directors of the New York Juvenile Asylum:

The Board of Directors of the New-York Juvenile Asylum being advised of the decease of our friend and associate, WILLIAM C. GILMAN, desire to record this testimony to his great personal worth, to the purity and consistency of his Christian character, and to his unwearied and disinterested labors for the welfare and salvation of the poor and friendless children of our City, as developed in the discharge of his duties as a Director of this Corporation since the year 1851.

Feeling sensibly our own great loss, we can the better appreciate the irreparable breach which his death has made in the circle where, as husband, father, companion and guide, he illustrated the excellencies of his Christian profession.

To the friends thus bereaved we unanimously tender our warmest sympathies.

Ordered, That this minute be placed on our records, and that a copy thereof, signed by the President and Secretary, be communicated to the friends of the deceased.

(Signed,) A.R. WETMORE, President
