Rupert Barry Sick At Jacksonville.
The many friends of Mr. J. J. Barry, of Grand Coteau, will be pained to learn that his soldier boy, Rupert, is very ill at Jacksonville, Fla., as the following correspondence will show:
U. S. CAMP,
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 16, 1898.
Mr. J. J. Barry, Grand Coteau, La.
Dear Sir.-Rupert, I am sorry to say, continues to be a very sick boy. And now with typhoid come pneumonic complications. He is mildly delirious at times; but whenever I come to his bed side he always recognizes me.
What a truly Catholic Christian gentleman your son is, No murmur, no complaint. His patience and gentleness have won the hearts of doctors and nurses.
To be on the safe side, and to help along his speedy recovery, if such be God's holy will, I gave him Extreme Unction last Wednesday. I do sincerely hope that Providence may extend His usual kindness to me in that regard whenever I have given the Last Sacraments the patient has recovered.

Yours most sincerely,
P.J. KENNEDY, S.J.
