[Note: The following death was reported in The Free Press on November 15, 1883, but was refuted by Mr. Auerbach himself in a letter to the paper published December 6, 1883. See below.]

Mr. Charles Auerbach, who was in business here for several years, died in Abbeville, S. C., a few days ago. Our people will remember Charlie as being a very clever and upright gentleman.

Still in the Land of the Living.

A few weeks ago we made mention of the rumor that our old friend Chas. Auerbach had died in Abbeville, S. C., all of which, no doubt was received with sadness by his many friends here. But the rumor proved false as Charlie came kicking to the front with the following letter:

C. H. C. Willingham: Dear SiróI read in your paper the announcement of my death, but let me assure you in all sincerity that I am still alive. Donít you know it is impossible to kill a Dutchman.

I am doing well here, but the business this season is not what it ought to be, as the crops were very short in this section. With many regards to you and my friends, I am yours truly,
Charles Auerbach
