At rlyl of the morning, iu tho commencement of tho year 183—, I called upon by a young friend to utteud the bedside of a dying man; who coedingly anxious to bequeath his proper ty to an individual out of tho line of legal succession, and therefore desired tho rity of professional aid iu tho construction of his will. Alihough I Iiave always felt extreme repugnancy to the prcsenco of sickness, and eschewed with sibility the sight of mortal dissolution, yet such wem tho peculiar circumstances urg i in this iustance, that I could refuse to accompany iny friend to the sccuo of death. I waited upon the feeble aud fast sink ing being who had evinced such particular desire lor pcrsoual attendance, aud than ordinary desire lor my pcrsoual attendance, aud found him with all tho comfofts and tient resignation tho aud eyeless lac.

Tho greatest effort seemed here to bo ac plished. Tho patient motioned his desire to be laid in a more horizontal po sition, which was obeyed by those arouud him, aud turning his faco towards me, cast anxious look upo . tho paper which 1 if enger to bear its contents. It was read to him, and be signifying his approval, extended his head as far as his remnant of strength would permit, to plete its oxecution. I placed iho pen in his lingers; and guided his clammy baud as it traced his name upon tho paper.

During tho prdBocütion of his studies hero, his society and omidst tho ionnble life with which ho much sought after, gay and busy inaEc of fash d I ft s hid ti able associations surrdunded, it was not thought strange that ho sbduld delect an object lor his more particular atlcntidnahd confidence.
