Died. It is again my painful duty to write up the death of another esteemed citizen of this vicinity, Uncle Pitman Painy is no more. He breathed his last on the 21st inst. It seems that our ____ have time to dry and our hearts to cease throbbing and the newly disturbed clods had not settled to their wanted stillness over some of our beloved friends till it was our sorrowful duty to bow ourselves around the form of beloved old friend Pitman Rainy. He lived to a ripe age of 75 years and has been a sufferer for 20 years and his suffering was intense most of the time though he bore his affliction with patience. He is the father of twelve children and most of them witnessed his death, and he raised his glassy eye towards heaven and told the children that was standing around his bed to meet him; those were his last words. I am confident he meant to meet him in the sweet beyond. H.H. E.
