Departed this life on Monday morning, Doctor
JAMES CARMICHAEL, in the 60th year of his
age—after a short illness, although his health had de-
clined for several years past.
Dr. Carmichael was a native of Scotland, but came
to this country at an early period of his life, settled
in Fredericksburg and commenced the practice of
his profession.— Few men of the Faculty have had a
wider range or been more successful as a practitioner
of the healing art—He was justly regarded as very
skilful, and had the high confidence of the communi-
ty in which he lived and died.
He was a man of great benevolence of disposition,
of generous feelings and of high and honorable char-
acter—a faithful and sincere friend—possessing as
much of the milk of human kindness as any man
living—no one knew him better than he who thus
inscribes to the memory of his departed friend and
family physician, this small tribute of unfeigned re-
gret and sorrow at his death—a serious loss to this
community and to his afflicted family. He was a
believer in the great and sanctifying precepts of Chris-
tianity, and his remains were entombed in the Ma-
sonic burial ground of Lodge No. 4, yesterday morn-
ing, followed by an unusually large concourse of his
relatives, friends and fellow citizens.
June 15th, 1831.
