was quite senseless at night, when he was in this deplorable state carried to the stable and put upon some straw; in the morning, about 5 o’clock, he arose, but being extremely ill from
the effects of drinking, be was obliged to be led to the Colonial Hospital, wherein a few minutes after his arrival he died while sitting on the step of the door.
