A CASE OF CHOLERA

And this:

Theakiki 38:1 (Feb 2008) reprints an article from the Kankakee (IL) Gazette dated 20 Sept 1883. It notes that a local doctor was called out to examine a woman who’d taken sick about 7 PM on Sunday night. When the doctor got there at 11 PM, she had already collapsed into unconsciousness. By 5 AM Monday morning, she was dead. The doctor noted that “her symptoms were of genuine cholera.”
