Death of Judge Litchfield at Acworth.

The above named gentleman, well known to many of our Bartow county people, died Tuesday night of last week at his home in Acworth. He was the proprietor of the hotel that bore his name in that place which is known far and near as one of the best in the land. About 8 ¼ o’clock on the evening of his demise, Judge Litchfield retired from his office where he had been reading, to his bed room, undressed himself and lay down on his bed for a night’s rest. In five minutes after he had gone to bed his wife noticed he breathed a little unnaturally. She approached his bedside and spoke to him. For the first time since their marriage, over forty years ago, her gentle call failed to elicit a response. He was sixty-five years old, and had lived in the community of Acworth about thirty years. He was widely known and universally esteemed. The announcement of his death casts a gloom over the entire community. He was buried in Liberty Hill cemetery last Thursday at ten o’clock. He leaves a wife, son and a large circle of friends to mourn his untimely departure.
