The Reveille

October 2, 1846

CAKE, CHARLES T. - On Wednesday the 30th of September, after a lingering illness of some five weeks, Mr. Charles T. Cake, Editor and Publisher of this paper. About one year ago he came to our town and established a Democratic Press and labored with great zeals and industry to sustain it under great discouragements. Whilst among us he maintained an honorable and high minded character as a gentleman, and had the good will of all our citizens of every party. His remains were followed by numbers, sympathizing with the deeply afflicted widow, and orphan son. After a funeral discourse delivered by the Rev. Mr. Rutledge in the M. E. Church, his mortal body was consigned to the narrow house in the grave yard. In behalf of the widow and weeping mother, we return our thanks for the kindness and attention shown to them and the deceased in the time of their great affliction.
