Kaukauna Times, Kaukauna, WI, Feb. 5, 1909

Thomas T. MINOR died at Fond du Lac last week at the age of 86 years. He left a few lines beneath his pillow about his life's history, closing with the words. "I have seen enough-I am satisfied." It is worth while to read what the old man wrote. Here it is:
