Last Saturday the remains of Alonzo Reed were interred with masonic honors in the Pomfret cemetery. Many who have known him only ion his last years have been perhaps a rough-visaged man. But to his friends, the wrinkled face indicated both physical and mental suffering, coupled with a resolute fight against adversity. Beneath it all was a kind heart,. Some can remember how in 1861, a boy of 18, he enlisted, and at Lee's Mills received many wounds. Since then every day in pain, yet plunging into the hardest farm work as heroically as into the rebel ranks. He was the first wounded soldier brought back over the Vermont Central road, and one rebel bullet buried in his body all these years is the companion of his rest.
