An Appeal From L. I. Redmond.
The following letter from Lewis
R. Eedmond to A. B. Williams,
editor of the "Daily News," and
puiblished in that paper, speaks for
AUBURN, N. Y., Eeb. 20.
SIR: I received a letter fron
my old friend, W. G. Fields, a few
days ago, speaking of some of my
old acquaintances of former days
past and gone, and your name was
among the list. So I take the 6g
portunity of addrebsing you.. I amu
in a critical state of health at this
period, lingering as it were, be
tween life and death. My physi
cal health is fast on the decline. I
have the consnmIption in its worst
stages. I spit a great deal of
blood. I have been living in hopes
of returning to my native land ere
this as the climate does not agree
with consumptives here, as it is
cold. There has been snow on the
ground since November past ip to
date, althoulgh.quite moderate here
to-day. * * * *
I ascertained a few days ago that
persons whose names I will not
mention here, having nothing to do
but trouble other's affairs, intro
duced themselves to my friend, W.
G. Fields, and are trying to draw
his attention toward ine and my
case to their own satisfaction, for
fear he would help me out of my
present situation. May I ask you,
my friend, to insert in your paper
my eircumstance.s. I can certify
that W. G. Fields has been like a
father toward ine in every respect,
as I have known him for the past
; ycart and lie has been to me as
irue as steel. Before my trial I
resided at his residence, andI hej
(W. G. Fields) gave me goodl ad
vise to the true way. lie has been
dearer to me than a brother, and
if' my father were alive to-day and
should make a statement to me he
were not my friend I would not be
lieve his words. I have neither
parents or kin to take an interest
in this my lonely suff erings in a
strange land without any dear
ones to bid me my last good-bye
on earth ; no one to take me by the
hand and say at comforting wordl.
You cannot for onie brief moment
realize my situation. May the
friendls -of my countiiry ralily anid
bring me home to die. If some
help does not reach me soon I anm
o se. It may beC t o-morrow ; we
cannfot tecll when the Messeng~er of
D~eath may strike us dlown).
Picease remembher mue to my
friends and a'cqulainltanees, esp~e
cially Mrs. Floyd, also Mr's. (Cau
