Sudden Death.—Scone.—On Thursday last, Mr. John Abbott, of Muswell Brook, who had been some distance up the country, and had reached Scone on his return, took lunch at the Golden Fleece Inn, Scone, and walked out afterwards. He had, however, got but a very short distance from the house when he was suddenly taken ill, and a passer-by removed him to a hut near. His friends and medical assistance were immediately sent for, but in spite of every effort he died in about three hours from the time he was attacked. He had been unwell some short time ago, but appeared to have quite recovered. From the symptoms attending his sudden illness, it is believed he died from disease of the heart. Mr. Abbott was in the prime of life, with every appearance of strength and health. He leaves a widow and four young children to lament his loss.
At the Golden Fleece Inn, St. Aubin's, near Scone, suddenly, on the 11th Nov., Mr. John Abbott, sheriff's officer, of Skellatar, Muswell Brook, aged 42 years ; much regretted by his relations and a large circle of friends.
