.... Levi Finch, Greenville, has a horse thirty-two years old. Thomas Cargill of this village has a faithful old gray which came here with the first Yankees from Connecticut, drawing a load of wooden nutmegs, in 1792.

.... He is gone. Tom Cargill's Old Gray has joined that innumerable caravan of shadowy souls that are browsing on the sweet herbage of equine heaven- perhaps; at least, he deserves to be if he isn't. He went down to the grave full of years and fly-bites and a string inclination to go to sleep in his tracks. He was not a centenarian, but he had cavorted down the aisles of time in Summer's heat and Winter's cold till it would give Memory the headache to recollect to the contrary. He was by no means a handsome horse, but like Smiley's frog "he had p'ints," and now he has gone over to the majority let's weep a tear for his memory.
