Death of C. H. C. Willingham.

On Tuesday morning of December 30th, 1884, Mr. C. H. C. Willingham, editor and proprietor of the Cartersville Free Press, breathed his last.  His death, though not unexpected, brought tears to the eyes of very many, and sadness to a wide circle of friends all over Georgia.

For upwards of thirty-five years he had been a Georgia editor, and he was justly considered one of our ablest writers.  His style was clear, forcible and brilliant.  Whatever individual or cause he championed he was always the same earnest, zealous, courageous and influential advocate.  He was an opponent not to be despised, and a friend to be sought.  We knew him for a number of years, and we can say truthfully that we never have known a more humane or kinder hearted man.  He may have made mistakes, but they were of the head, and not of the heart.  His intentions were always good.  He wished to do no one a harm.

To his five boys who mourn his loss, we offer our sincere sympathies.
