Death Notice

Henry remained active and involved with life to the end, the poetry he wrote in his 78th year being as strong and bright as that of his earlier years.

Just two months before his death, Henry wrote to son Charles.

I returned from NYork about 4 weeks ago from attending as a witness on the Astor trial with James Carver, one of his assorted tenants. I was there about 20 days. Mr. Astor succeeded in this suit. When this important question will be decided, no one yet knows. Perhaps our legislature may, the ensuing session, take the business up in earnest; pay Mr. A. his just demands & quiet the minds of 700 families in Putnam. I brought up a small cold I had caught in town, which increased since my return, but is now waning.
