OBITS 1824

Baltimore Patriot: 5 August 1824
Submitted by: D. Rhema

BREVITT.- With no ordinary emotions of regret, we record the departure of our late worthy citizen, JOHN BREVITT, who died on the 24th inst. after a severe illness of several weeks, in the 64th year of his age. We mention his death as a subject of information, or custom, for his virtuous character stands in no need of newspaper eulogy. He was well known as one of the oldest and most respectabel inhabitants of Baltimore, and during a long and useful life, exhibited do unblemished a character and such a course of honorable and upright conduct, as casts a dignity on human nature itself. In private life, his social virtues were of the first order and his friendships of the most valued kind. He was an officer during the American Revolution, and joined the army at the age of 19-For the last 25 years of his life, he was an active member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in his religious career evinced so much piety, and such an eveness and consistency of deportment that the tongue of slander itself never lisped a reproach against him. He died without an enemy and in the full assurance of eternal bliss.
“The chamber where the good man meets his fate,
Is privleged beyond the common walk,
Of virtuous life, quite in the verge of heaven.”
