John S. Rock very ill

John S. Rock   We regret to learn that Dr. Rock, of this city, who has been in poor health for more than a year past, has been unable to find any relief, and that he is declining.  He hopes, as a last resort that he may gain relief from a change of climate, and having been unfortunate, he asks the generous to aid him.  Dr. Rock needs no commendation from us.  He is well known in this community as a worthy and esteemed man, who has labored faithfully to elevate himself, and to win respect for his race.   —- Boston Bee
