The general sympathy and concern for the murder of the lad by the base and

infamous Richardson on the 22d Instant, will be sufficient reason for your notifying

the public that he will be buried from his fathers house in Frogg Lane,

opposite Liberty-Tree, on Monday next, when all the friends of liberty may have

an opportunity of paying their last respects to the remains of this little hero

and first martyr to the noble cause-whose manly spirit (after the accident

happened) appear’d in his discreet answers to his doctor, his thanks to the

clergymen who prayed with him, and parents, and while he underwent the

greatest distress of bodily pain; and with which he met the king of terrors.

These things, together with the several heroic pieces found in his pocket,

particularly Wolfe’s Summit of human Glory, gives reason to think he had a

martial genius, and would have made a clever man.
