TRIBUTE OF RESPECT
TO THE NEXORY OF
ROBERT S. GANTT, Esq.
STATE OF ARKANSAS,
DECEMBER 4, 1871. lion. E. H. English announced to the court the death of ROBERT S. GANTT, Esq., a member of the bar of this court, and, after an appropriate address, presented the following resolutions, adopted at a meeting of the members of the bar of the city of Little Rock, and moved that they be spread upon the records of this court, which was accordingly ordered :
“ROBERT S. Gantt departed this life, in the city of Little Rock, at half past four o'clock, P. M, on Thursday, the 30th day of November, 1871, aged about thirty-seven years. A native of Alabama, he removed to the State of Arkansas, in 1857, where he resided until his untimely death.
Possessed of but little of this world's goods, he adopted the profession of The law, trusting alone to his energy, uprightness and intellect for success, and most signally and worthily did he win it. Endowed with a strong intellect and will, accompanied with great knowledge of men and the means of bringing their minds in relation with his own, he, at the time of his death, ranked among the first in the land, both as before the jury and as before the court, while his gentleness of heart and bearing and his ready charity and general sympathy with others' woes, caused the news of his untimely decease to all the minds of all who knew him with the deepest sorrow; one of the few of the men of strong character of whom it can be said that he died without an enemy. Therefore, be it
Resolved, That we have learned with extreme grief and sadness of the death of our late friend and companion, ROBERT S. GANTt, and we deplore, his loss as that of one of our ablest and most cherished brethren.
Resolved, That we deeply sympathise with the friends and relatives of the deceased, and especially with his young children, who are now orphans, indeed, their mother having by a few years preceded their father to the tomb.
Resolved, That the members of this bar attend his funeral, in a body, tomorrow morning, at ten o'clock.
Resolved, That the chairman of this meeting present a copy of these resolutions to the Supreme Court with a request that they, at their next regular meeting, be spread upon the records thereof, and that he accompany such resolutions with such remarks as he may think proper to make; and that Mr. Rose present the same to the circuit court of the county; that Mr. Wilshire present the same to the chancery court; Mr. Whipple to the United States Circuit court, and Mr. E. W. Gantt to the criminal court."
