;f A Suicide's Letter.
The man who committed suicide in Nev
York, last Tuesday night, wrote the followioj
J; letter a short time before his death :?
New York, Jar. 22, 1878.
Edward F. Underbill, esq, No. 3C0 Wes
I hcentieth street, N. Y,:
Dear Mr. Underiiill?I trust you wil
excuse my writing to you, as 1 shall not prob
ably bother you for some time. 1 have adver
tised repeatedly to try and get steady work, bu
I have not been able to get it. My mooey it
J running out, and I tbiok it is best for mo tc
end my life before I be dependent upm aoj

funeral expenses. I wish first to thank you
lor your kioduess to mc sinco I have koowc
you aod to assure yen that I feel biccerely
grateful to y.ou. I have done my best to quali
IV myself in my business, thinking that if I did
not suoeecd I would at least deserve sucoess;
but it is not my fate to succeed, and I may
as well acoept it without wbioiog...) [.
I know that when I oommit suicide people
will say I am a fool and a lunatic aod such
complimentary terms, but I don't care for the
kick of an ass, though I can't help feeling it.
I will bo beyond all that very soon, however. I
have minded my own business io life, have
paid my own way and done as much good as I
could, aod will put my trust in God for the
next world. Perhaps I may find out that there
is a hell, thoughd think we have hell enough
on earth without manufacturing one for the
hereafter. At any rate, if there is a hell it is
a comfort to know that "there will be no more
is winter there." Thanking you onoc more for
your kindness to me,
I remain yours truly,
Fred. Houck.
The deceased, who was au excellent short
haDd reporter, was a sod of the late A. V.
Houck, of Baltimore.
