Obituary

At an early hour yesterday morning H. C. H. Lewis of North Battery street, who had been ill with a complication of diseases for several months, arose from his bed for some purpose and was suddenly stricken down, breathing his last a few moments later, Mr. Lewis has been seriously ill for some time, but his death, though not unexpected, was none the less of a blow to his family. The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon and after a prayer at the house will be in charge of the Red men, of which organization he was an active member.

The deceased was about 50 years of age and formerly a resident of Bellows Falls. He was deputy great sachem of the tribe of Red Men of this city and was instrumental in its organization. He is survived by a wife, a daughter, a mother and a sister. A large circle of friends give their sympathy to the bereaved family.
