Up to within two weeks of his death, he had enjoyed good health and spirits, and was in the battle fought near Richmond the 31st May, and 1st June, of which he gave an account in a letter written to a relative.
As long obituary notices are a trespass upon the columns of a newspaper, and are not often read, suffice it to say that Arnolphus, while living, was much esteemed for his frankness and manly bearing, his kind and generous disposition, his habits of industry and sobriety; while in death he is lamented by a large circle of relatives and acquaintances
Died—Near Gordonsville, Va., on the 2nd inst., of typhoid fever, Lewis W. Kimbrough, in the 19th year of his age.
Lewis possessed many high and noble qualities.—He was a most dutiful and affectionate son, and his death is deeply to be regretted by all who knew him well; and has inflicted a wound in the hearts of his bereaved parents which time can never heal.
