Obituary of Morris Lasker, Galveston, Texas.

Comrade Morris Lasker, former Commander of Magruder Camp, U. C. V., who served in Company F, 2d Regiment of Texas Cavalry, C. S. A., departed this life on the 28th of February, 1916, at his home, in Galveston, Tex. Though born in the German Empire and strongly attached to the people and traditions of his fatherland, he realized that his allegiance belonged to the country of his adoption, and at the first call to arms he enlisted in the 2d Texas Mounted Infantry and later was in the 2d Texas Cavalry when Texas joined her sisters of the South. At the close of the War between the States he accepted the arbotraments of the sword and became a loyal citizen of Texas of the great galaxy of the United States of America."

And now at a ripe old age, with his name written in the book as "one who loved his fellow man," this comrade has answered his last roll call. His comrades commissioned to give expression to the sentiment and feeling of the Camp passed memorial resolutions, from which the following is taken:

"Resolved, That the members of Magruder Camp, No. 105, U. C. V., bow in sorrow and submission to the dispensation Divine Providence in the recall of the immoral spirit of our lamented comrade, Morris Lasker, for whom our highest esteem and confidence were expressed in his selection to serve as Commander of our Camp." [Committee: William M. Stafford, E. E. Rice, William L. Cameron, and Robert M. Franklin.]
