• Illness: OSWEGO MORNING POST, FRIDAY, 22 Dec 1882, Oswego Town, Oswego, New York. Will D. Case
Mr. William D. Case, one of Oswego's promising young men, who was taken suddenly sick in Illinois a few days ago, is expected home this morning. He went from here to assume the duties of private secretary to Mr. Morton, the democratic candidate for governor of Nebraska, during the campaign. The performance of the duties of secretary to Mr. Morton in the most exciting political contest ever known in Nebraska, was indeed an arduous task. Both candidates discussed the question at issue from the same stage and before the same audiences in every city in the state. Mr. Case traveled with them and reported in short-hand the speeches of both candidates for publication. This was a task that few could perform as well, and none better than Mr. Case.
Soon after the close of the political contest in Nebraska, Mr. Case entered the employ of a large manufacturing company at Kewanee, Ill., as private secretary and corresponding clerk to the president and manager of the company. Here, by reason of his business tact, he was rapidly winning his way upward when his health began to fail, and he has been obliged to desist from his labors and return to Oswego for rest and recuperation.
Mr. Case is the son of our esteemed townsman, Mr. C. O. Case, Esq., and is 22 years old Hosts of friends both in Oswego and in the west unite the hope that he may be speedily restored to health, that he may renew the exercise of his talents and win that success in life which such young men as he never fail to achieve in whatever pursuit they may be pleased to enter.
