The many friends of Major* Lewis B. Wynne for many years a clerk in the office of the Sixth Auditor of the Treasury, will learn with regret of his death, which occurred at the residence of his son yesterday at College Hill. Major Wynne was appointed to the office by President Lincoln. He was a member of the Illinois Legislature, a colleague of Hon. Horiato Browning, afterwards United States Senator and Secretary of Interior.

He was a gifted speaker and happy faculty of making friends of all who came in contact with him.

He held this office under the Government until recently, when, owing to ill health, he was obliged to resign, and, after suffering for about a year with complications of disease, died at the age of sixty-eight years.

His interment will take place tomorrow near Seneca, Md.

NOTE: There are numerous times when he is mentioned as "Major" but there is no evidence that he was involved in any military organization.
