Obituary

Died in the General Hospital at Washington, D. C., May 5th, Wm. E. Rudd, of Company I, 11th Regiment of Vt. Volunteers, aged 26 years.

Mr. Rudd, moved by the spirit of patriotism left a wife and one child behind, and hasted to the scene of conflict to defend our beloved country in this time of our greatest peril.

Soon after he was mustered in he was taken of the measles, from which he never fully recovered.

He died a good soldier, invoking blessings upon our Government, and upon his deeply afflicted family. His remains were returned to this town, to slumber with kindred dust, until the first resurrection in which he had hope.
