Obituary

Lieutenant Harry Hudson, killed on the 19th inst.,while destroying a bridge on the Orange and Richmond Railroad, was, for fifteen years previous to him entering the army, a resident of Roxborough, Twenty-first Ward of this city, where he was well known and highly esteemed by a large circle of friends. At the commencement of the Rebellion he was among the first to volunteer his services for the maintenance of our Government and for the perpituity of the Union - the inheritance of our forefathers. Deservingly, he received gradual promotion, until he became First Lieutenant of the Company to which he was attached, by whom he was considered a truely brave man and a good officer. A stranger to fear and possessing a constitution of great endurance, there is little doubt, had he been spared but that he would have given good account of himself. His untimely end will be deeply lamented by all who knew him well. G.S.M.
