This is the second of several articles from the San Antonio Newspaper on the death of Major Robert Weakly Brahan (6/9/1811 - 4/16/1885).


DEATH OF MAJOR ROBERT W. BRAHAN
SAN ANTONIO WEEKLY GAZETTE
APRIL 23, 1885
"AND STILL HE BEARS WITHOUT REPROACH,
THE GRAND OLD NAME OF GENTLEMAN"

"His house was always open for his friends, the hospitality of which was as unbounded and free as air and his purse was ever ready to relieve the suffering of the poor and distressed. In sunming up the many good qualities of his head and heart, it may be said that he was one of nature's noblemen, a southen gentleman of the old shcool, who scorned a mean or dishonest act and lived a life of honor and usefulness".
The above lines, Mr. Editor, copied from your obituary notice of Maj. R. W. Brahan's death in the San Antonio Express of April 19th, are in themselves, a tribute to one who well deserved it; a graceful compliment to the departed that will find recognition and approval to the hearts of hundreds of friends, not in Texas only, but in the state of Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, wherin Maj. Brahan was both well known and loved. Better words cannot be chosen to describe a noble life.
(Signed) A friend.
