Obituary

SOUTH POMFRET

It was with a feeling of sadness that, last week, we read of the death of George E. Fogg of Quechee. Yet the tide of life had been with him, and death was a relief. Born with an excessively nervous temperament and weak constitution, yet he managed to carry his musket through the rebellion, and came home but with the seeds of pulmonary disease in his system. He was a good scholar, and his talents were often curing his melancholy-----in frequent contributions to the press. At last he succumb to that dire disease, consumption, We can but hope that one who had laid all upon the altar of his country may ---- future of rest and peace after life's --- course has gone.
