Obituary

Richard Lawrence, Brattleboro, died in that place on Tuesday. Mr. Lawrence was a member of the 16th Regiment Vermont volunteers, nine months' men, and was mustered out of the service after the battle of Gettysburg. He afterward went to Chicago, and was for a time employed in a railroad office in that city, but soon enlisted in an Illinois regiment which was ordered to Georgia, where he contracted a malarial and brain fever, from the effects of which he never fully recovered.
