Only a few week* hare passed

wo see it verified iu the case of
this excelhmt family; and while
its members arc assured of the
wannest sympathy from a be
reaved community, they must
pass "under the rod.”
Ur LeGraud was too well knowu
in Richmond and even through
out the State, fur us to speak at
length of his virtues, hi* life and
hi* death, and as we expect to
hare injsar next issue an obituary
notice, we forbear to add to what
