Death Of Dr. Witter

We learn that Dr. Amos Witter, Surgeon of the 7th Iowa Regiment, and late Representative in the General Assembly from Linn County, died a few days since at his home, to which he had recently returned by reason of illness.  The labors of his position as Surgeon had been extremely arduous, and were probably the occasion of his death.  The Doctor was an honored citizen and a faithful public officer. – {Des Moines Register.
