Obituary

Died in the Merion Hospital in Burlington, July 10th, Richard R. Percival, of Braintree, of Co. I, 17th regiment Vermont volunteers, aged 33 years.

Like many others he has laid his life on the country's altar. May posterity reap the fruit in the enjoyment of a firmly established Government. He leaves a wife and 3 children who were dependent on him for support. How short the human life. Of what value is the Christian's hope.
