Obituary

DEATH OF A VT. SHARP SHOOTER Liked in the late battle near Richmond, Levi H. Leet, Co. E, Berdan's sharp shooters, formerly of Marshfield, Vt. The news was received here Friday evening, where his wife, mother and sister and other relatives now reside. The ball passed through his spine, killing him instantly. When the rebellion broke out, he enlisted as three months' man, and returned to his family in August. He remained with them until Sept. 5th, when he enlisted in the New Hampshire company of sharp shooters. He leaves a large circle of friends to lament his loss. - Caledonian.
