The Argus, Melbourne 28/3/1871:On Friday, Mr Chandler held an inquest at South Preston, on the body of George Antrim, aged 57 years, a labourer.
Deceased was not strong, but was able to go up about to the end.  On Wednesday evening he went to bed in his usual health, but early next morning he died suddenly without a struggle.  He had no medical treatment.  Dr Daniels, cound that death had been caused by inflammation of the lungs and pleurisy.  Medical attention a few days before death would probably have saved his life.
