at the time of his decease was sixty years,
two months and ten days old.
Mr. Savnge'emigrated to Oregon in 1851.
and settled where now stands the Boston
Mills. He was a man of more than ordi
nary energy and mental capacity, and
much respected by his neighlmrs and ac
quaintances, until by slow degrees that tell
enemy of humanity alcohol gained su
premacy over his manhood, which resulted
in an estrangement between him and his
family, the particulars ot which neither
we nor the public need to inquire. In the
fall of 1S71 he sold his land and started for
Eastern Oregon, 110 doubt resolving with
new associations to form new habits. He
remained in Umatilla comity, Oregon, and
Walla Walla county, W. T., but a few
months, and the following spring started
East, traveling much, visiting relatives
principally in Illinois, Ohio and his native

Forget me. Mourn not for me, I will he
at ret. I h'lve travelled and hoped to lay
my body down away Irom troubling my
fiends, but there is no other plaee so dear
to me as tneold place in Oregon. It I had
kiiled myseif five years ago when I was
first temptedTit woiiliMiave beehlielter, as '
I then foresaw and predicted. Before I
sold my land, I chose death then rather
than to sell. No one will ever know my
feclings'at that time.- But I could not die,
and could not then consent to take rny own
life. But I am now past labor. I have
spent all I had. and I choose death rather
than to be a burden to my people. I wi-h
to be as little trouble as possible. I will
lay my body in the burying ground. Tear
awty the old shanty, the remnant of the
first building mat sheltered us from ttie
storms a tier our weary journey across the
plains, ami burn it up. Ja' stones around
and on mv grave. Put some private mark
so yon can tell if my body Iims been snatched
away by t lie doctors. I do not want them
to get my body.
Thus cuds the letter proper, then written
evidently at different times, the following
