ON PAGE 3 IS THE NOTICE OF HAMILTON’S DEATH AS WELL AS HIS LAST RITES AND HIS FORGIVENESS OF AARON BURR ON HIS DEATHBED: “With emotions that we have not a hand to inscribe, have we to announce the death of ALEXANDER HAMILTON. He was cut off in the 48th year of his age, in the full vigor of his faculties and in the midst of all his usefulness… [quoting clergyman Benjamin Moore upon visiting Hamilton after the duel:] ‘Should it please God to restore you to health, Sir, will you never be again engaged in a similar transaction? and will you employ all your influence in society to discountenance this barbarous custom?’ His [Hamilton’s] answer was, ‘That Sir, is my deliberate intention.’... Do you sincerely repent of your sins past; have you a lively faith in God’s mercy through Christ, with a thankful remembrance of the death of Christ? And are you disposed to live in love and charity with all men? He [Hamilton] lifted up his hands and said, ‘With the utmost sincerity of heart I can answer those questions in the affirmative - I have no ill-will against Col. Burr. I met him with a fixt resolution to do him no harm - I forgive all that happened.’”
