Shaeffer's company, was shot by one of our pickets, owing to some orders given to the pickets and imperfectly understood, as it turns out. Young Gwynn was beloved by his whole company. He was a youth remarkable for the kindness and gentleness of his manners — pure in heart, tender and affectionate, and his death, whilst is must create a void in his family which cannot be filled, yet his parents can have the consolation that he died with no stain upon his pure spirit, and that he has been relieved, by a decreed of Providence in his early life, from all those His that affect our race.
