Severe illness resulting from fever caused by exposure in the Cuban campaign rendered it impossible, however, for Mr. King to remain in the army. He began the practice of law at San Francisco, Cal., with Mr. Emil Liess, under the firm name of Liess & King, and soon acquired a lucrative practice, but his system had become so debilitated by the Cuban fever, which reappeared at intervals, that, having contracted a cold which settled on his lungs, he was warned by his physicians that he could not live in the moist atmosphere of San Francisco and that he must seek a dry climate and greater altitude. After a brief sojourn in Arizona, therefore, he has taken up his residence in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in Placer County, California, where he is recovering his health and strength. He was commander of Nelson A. Miles Camp, No. 10, Department of California, United Spanish War Veterans. Mr. and Mrs. King have no children.
