Notes or transcript:  “‘Squire J. H. Grigsby handed us a paper yesterday with an account of the death, by drowning, of L. A. Voorhees, one of the wealthiest men in Blandinsville, Illinois. The unfortunate man, in company with one of Mr. Grigsby’s relatives and some other gentlemen, was fishing when the death occurred. The strange part of the drowning is that Mr. Voorhees was a splendid swimmer and was treading water when he went under and no water was found in his lungs when his body was recovered. The doctors think he was stricken with apoplexy.”
