Lee Durham’s Death.

It is our sad duty to record the death, last Friday night of Lee Durham, son of Mr. F. M. Durham, of this city.  He had contracted disease while attending school in Kentucky, which necessitated his return home, and had been in feeble health ever since, until, after a long season of confinement, his spirit departed at the time named.  He was a bright, promising boy of some seventeen years –noted for his generous impulses and manly traits.

The funeral was conducted by Rev. W. H. Cooper, and there were not many dry eyes in the large assembly, as the preacher told of his happy conversion shortly before his death.  While all hearts go out in sympathy to the bereaved family, there is the sweetest assurance that all is well with out noble hearted young friend.
