      "In Memoriam"
      "Assistant Surgeon Lucius S. BOLLES, the son of Rev. Lucius S. and Sarah (Noyes) Bolles, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, April 21, 1837. He was educated at the University Grammar School and Brown University, Providence, graduating in 1859. He studied medicine with Doctors Okie and Wilcox and at the medical school of the University of Pennsylvania, receiving his degree of doctor in medicine in 1861. He was appointed assistant surgeon in the Second Regiment, March 9th, 1863, but was obliged to resign, September 10th, on account of the death of a brother, which called him home. Settling in Philadelphia, he was attached to one of the military hospitals in that city till the close of the war. In June, 1865, he married Gertrude, daughter of Dr. B. S. Janney of Philadelphia. A man of delicate constitution, he was hardly fitted to endure the hardships of military service. But he was very faithful to all his duties, and by the kindness of his heart, a genial temper, and great social gifts, he endeared himself very warmly to the officers and men of the Regiment during his brief term of service. He died in Philadelphia, August 15th, 1873."
