Death of Henry E. Benson

Another Severe Loss

The Editor of the Liberator is called to mourn over a second bereavement, within a short time, in the death of his brother-in-law, the ‘amiable, devoted and widely-beloved’,  HENRY EGBERT BENSON,  youngest son of the late venerable George Benson of Brooklyn, Ct.  He died in Providence on Friday afternoon, Jan. 6, in the 23d year of his age, peacefully and happily.
