A FIRM PROTESTANT. Brooklyn, Nov. 19, 1903. .v. THE FATE OF A, H. GREEN'S UNCLE.! - . To the Editor of The JTcw York Thnee: The sad and tragic death of the Hon. Andrew Andrew H. Green recalls to mind the equally tragic lJut more mysterious death of his noted uncle, Dr." Green of thls,cy, in 1$12.. Dr. Green had been the family physician, of Col. Aaron Bunv and was summoned to the home of Theodosia Burr 'Alston, daughter daughter of CoU Burr and wife of Gov. 'Alston of South Carolina, who was ill In consequence of the death of her son, Aaron Burr Alston, familiarly ' known in-history in-history in-history as " Little Gamp." ' t CoL Burr had but recently arrived ; In New York City from Europe, with joyful anticipations of seeing Theodosia and her boy, when he received a letter from her containing these words: " A lew mlserahje days past, my dear father, and your late letters would have gladdened my soul, and : even now- now- I rejoice rejoice at their contents as much as it Is possible possible for me to rejoice at anything, but there is no more joy for me; the world la a blank. I have lost my boy. My child is gone forever. . He expired on the 30th of June. My head is not sufficiently collected to eay anything further. May Heaven, by other blessings, make you some amends for the noble grandson you have lost." - To this sad story Gov. Alston, added: " One dreadful blow has destroyed us; reduced us to the veriest, the most sublime wretchedness. That boy, on - wljpra all rested; our companion, our friend he who was to have transmitted down the mingled blood of Theodosia and myself he who was to have redeemed all your glory and shed new lustre upon our families that boy, at once our happiness and our pride, is taken from us is dead " The blow was a dreadful one to CoL Burr. The boy was eleven years old, and "had shown those early signs of talent and courage courage which were peculiarly dear to ' Col. Burr and his daughter." They were passionately passionately fond of him, and hoped to realize in him "Chesterfield's beau ideal a man of Saxon heart, brain, and muscle, with Celtic quickness, wit, and polish.", The result was that Theodosia languished. Her family at once began to plan to send her away from her Southern home, and she awaited a favorable opportunity to coma North and join Her father in this city. The country being at war with Great Britain, and her husband tbe Governor of the State in which she resided and the Commander In Chief of the militia, prevented his accompanying accompanying her; consequently the overland route wauld hae been lonely and unsafe. It was finally resolved that she should undertake the trip by sea, and Col. Burr sent Dr. Green from New York to superintend superintend the embarkation and attend Mrss. Alston on the passage. She was very ill at the time. A small schooner, named the Patriot having put into Charleston Harbor Harbor after a privateering cruise, and being about to return to New York, was secured for the trio. The main cabin was occupied by Mrs. Alston. Dr. Green end a maid. On the last day of the. year of Ihv tha Patriot sailed out of Charleston Harbor Hundreds of sensational stories have been circulated about the event, but the last authentic inclicnt relative to the little ship or its passengers was when the white satis disappeared in the dim horizon on the blue Atlantic. " Twc or three days later, when the vessel had had about time to reach Cape Hat. teras, a violent storm set in. and the little craft and all on board were evidently lost Members of Dr. Gieen's family, .with Col. Burr, used to spend hours on the Battery, Battery, then the fasi.lonable promerade of the city looking with longing eyes down, toward the Narrows, hoping against hope that some news of the dear ones might yet be learned. But, alas! the truth will never be known to this vxrid until the arrival of that glad day, when "the sea shall give up itsdead." IRA K. MORRIS. - West New Brighton. S. I.. Nov. 14, 1U03.
