Farmer dies after dinner

City News – The Montreal Daily Post Jun. 15, 1885

A farmer named Beaudoin arrived from the country on Saturday morning and put up at one of the hotels opposite the Bonsecours Market. After his dinner he sat down in the office and was to all appearance asleep. The clerk, having occasion to come from behind the counter, discovered the astounding fact that the man was dead. A doctor was summoned and made an examination, pronouncing the cause of death to be heart disease. Beaudoin is a resident of St. Lin, where he owns a large farm. The coroner has been notified.
