Obituary of Alfred Brown Peticolas, Victoria, Texas.

The William R. Scurry Camp, of Victoria, Tex., announces with profound sorrow the death of Past Commander Alfred B. Peticolas, who entered life eternal on January 27, 1915.

He was born in Richmond, Va., May 27, 1838, read law in Amherst, Va., and was licensed to practice in September, 1859, when he selected Victoria, Tex. as his home. Instead of the peaceful peursuit of his profession, however, he heard the South's call to arms and volunteered in Company C, Riley's Regiment, Sibley's Brigade, and shared all the privations and battles of the New Mexico campaign, Since the war he pursued the practice of his profession, happy in the companionship of his devoted wife and three sons. Many justly earned honors came to him on account of his legal ability and authorship, but he was never so grand as when addressing an audience of United Daughters of the Confederacy or as orator for his beloved old Green's Brigade. His last public appearance was on June 3, and his words were a masterpiece of eloquence and patriotism.

We will cherish his memory as that of a gallant, brave soldier, a gentleman in the highest sense of its meaning, and a faithful Christian.

G. O. Stoner, A. Goldman, Committee.
