After eight months of marriage, I have has [sic] nothing but trouble, distress and uneasiness of mind. I am no longer responsible for debts of her contracting. Thomas Stuart. (Have you ever heard such whining? I'm thinking it wasn't a bed of roses for Jemina, either.)
*After a short illness, Thomas Dardis died on Thursday.
*Daniel Lambert died in London at the age of 40. He weighed 739 pounds.
*Dr. Charles F. Mabius cured a negro boy who was blind in 1807. Josiah Howell.
