Sick List News

On Monday last, (says the Zanesville Republican, of March 24) the contents of a loaded Musket, was lodged in the neck of a Mrs. Clayton, of this place, which may eventually deprive her of life.  A young man had stepped into the shop of Mr. Clayton and took up the Musket, not knowing it was charged, and whilst handling it, it went off; the load penetrating a board partition and entering the neck of Mrs. Clayton, who was in the adjoining room, just below the right ear and lodging against the vertebrae.
[Republican Compiler (Gettysburg, Penn. April 27, 1827) - Sub. by Nancy Piper]
