His comrades inform us that he lived the Christian soldier, and that his closing hours were rich with the consolation of religion. He died in his 26th Summer. His stricken widow and their little son, born since his father went into the service, are with her father, H. McAlister of Dundee. His funeral will take place in Palatine, next Sabbath, where his parents live and where he enlisted last Fall."
