Scope and Contents

Transcription: Spirit of the Times 1852 XXI 582 Death of Young Lady Lightfoot. - We regret to learn that ""Young Lady Lightfoot"", the youngest of Lady Lightfoot's colts, died at the stables of the late CHARLES HENRY HALL, Esq., at Harlem, on the 26th Dec., 1851. She was got by Shark, out of old Lady Lightfoot, and was owned by Dr. LEWIS A. SAYRE, of this city, by whom she was much valued on account of her blood and breeding. Her death was occasioned by a severe cold, which terminated in inflammation of the lungs. She died in foal of a horse colt, by Trustee, which rendered her loss still more severe. One Trustee filly, (the only one of her colts now living), remains, who is beautiful in her points, and shows the blood she is derived from in a remarkable degree.
