This is the OBITUARY for: William E. Hudson born 17 July 1858 Mississippi died 4 February 1884 Louisiana ------------------ The Monroe Bulletin Wednesday, February 20, 1884 Page 2, Column 5 In Memoriam. Died, February 4, at 1 o'clock a.m., Mr. W.E. HUDSON; aged 25 years and 6 months. Mr. HUDSON was born in Mississippi, July 17, 1858. His mother died when he was quite young, hence his accomplishments and worthy deportment were due more to his own earnest endeavors than to that watchful, loving care of a mother to which most men are due for such of similar acquirements as they may possess. After seeing life in Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Central America, with its various sects and various surroundings, he came to appreciate the fact that "the proper study for mankind is man," and selected for himself the profession whose battle ground is where "the tearful wail of stricken ones is heard." In pursuance of this choice, he matriculated at the Medical Department of the University of Louisiana last October, and since that time his manly and amiable bearing has deserved and won for him the respect and esteem of his instructors, and the hearty good wishes of all his classmates. As a man, he was just and upright in all his dealings. As a medical student, he was patient, persevering and attentive, possessed of a commendable ambition to alleviate the sufferings of his fellow-mortals from the various ills that flesh is heir to. Not a few of the patients in Charity Hospital, with whom he came in contact during his short stay among us, will remember his cheerful, willing, generous kindness, and watch in vain for his coming. As a friend, he was noble, staunch and true. If he had lived longer he could not have improved the record he has left us for sterling manhood and untarnished integrity. As it is, the strife is over and he sleeps the last sleep. Soldier rest, thy warfare o'er. Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking Dream of battle-fields no more.
