My Dear Aunt;
My mother requests me to write you a few lines which will inform
you that my little brother is much worse than when you left us. He
was taken violently ill last evening and still continues so. It is the
opinion of those that are about him, that without a great alteration,
he cannot survive many hours. Remember Pa and Ma to Aunt and
Uncle. JAMES C. HARRIS.
Ye proud, ambitious, wealthy, young and gay,
Who drink the spirit of the golden day,
And triumph in existence, come with me
And in the mouldering corpse our picture see.
Which you and all of us must soon or later be. Ův Dr. Young.
JAMES C. HARRIS.
