This page had nothing written on it but had 5 newspaper items pasted on the page:


“Painful Accident” – about a “young lad” Hiram Lawrence of Hardwick who died from a penetrating injury to his brain when a workman “threw a forkful of stuff” into a cart that he was in.  [no details of date or place.]


“A Shocking Accident” – In Shirley, Mass a Miss Williams, 16, daughter of Mr. Wm Williams died from a gunshot wound that “passed through her head”.  She was taking the gun from the house to give to her brother William who “saw a hawk”.  (no date)


“Drowned” – “George Albert, a little son of Mr. Calvin Bullard, aged three and a half years, was drowned in an uncovered well, on Chandler Hill, on Thursday”.  (no date or location)  This was followed by a poem;

                        The opening spring had scarce begun

                        When sweetest flowers begin to bloom

                        Ere George’s race was fully run,

                        And he had found an early tomb!

                        But let not tears of grief be shed,

                        Though he was worthy of our love;

                        For while his dust sleeps with the dead,

                        His spirit hath its home above.


“Died” – Bullard – “In Greenfield, Saratoga county N.Y. on the 16th inst., Mary A., wife of Calvin Bullard, aged 75 years” - Continues with writing from the children who “express sadness at the loss of our mother, whom we have not seen in 13 long years”.


Loose papers – a partial torn notice of what appears to be an obituary of John Hooper.  …of the late John Hooper…Saratoga was held in the …Thursday Sept 16.  Appears to say that the remains were placed beside his wife in the cemetery. (no name of cem.)
