Cor several years had not been good.
Mews of his death was received with
many evidences of grief in this city,
where for moro than fifty years ho
lind been a notable figure. Appar

if his .span of life. Once, before un
lergoing an operation, ho said to the
managing editor of the Courlcr-Jour
"I am prepared at any time to sur

thing for ti man in his 79th year to

I am ready for lt, and for all that

While convalescing from a previous
illness Mr. Watterson consented to
read some advance obituaries of him
self and wrote this:
