A Georgia paper, according to the Albany Law Journal gives the following account of the affecting retirement of Judge Logan E. Bleckley :-"His farewell was in a manner at once unique and beautiful. It was so much like the man, 80 expressive of his gentle nature, that it naturally affected his associates and all who heard him.
