The saddest event that has transpired lately in our section was the death of an honest citizen and highly esteemed neighbor, Silas B. Seay. His advantages in education were limited, but he was naturally endowed with a strong mind and quick decision—an impartial judge in arbitration, always restoring peace and good order in his neighborhood. The degraded tramp found food and raiment at his door. His purse was always open to every charitable demand, and he was a strong pillar of the church. Thus has passed away one of Bartow’s best citizens. Our only consolation is, our loss is his gain. He is gone to reap the rewards of his labors.
