Miss Van Lew Rallies.
Miss Elizabeth L. Van Lew, who has been desperately ill at her home, on Church Hill, rallied yesterday evening and was very much better last night. Dr. Marcy, her physician, said she might survive several days longer. She was resting easily, he added, and displayed remarkable vitality for a lady of her age.
