TRANSCRIBED TEXT:

Those who knew him well were shocked to hear of the sudden death of H. A. Lawrence, of the Town of York, which occurred Wednesday morning. Mr. Lawrence, while doing chores, was taken with a severe pain in his chest and was obliged to go to the house. His wife, alarmed at the appearance and suffering of her husband, called the boys at George Lindsley's, a neighbor, who arrived immediately. Mr. Lawrence, who had been bathing his feet, was then laid on the bed, but expired before being placed there, or immediately after. It could not be discovered that he breathed after he was laid down. In about three quarters of an hour after he was taken with the pain he was dead. Mr. Lawrence was 51 years old and had resided in Clark County 16 years. He was a man universally esteemed. We knew him well and respected his many good qualities. Mr. Lawrence was an old soldier and was drawing a monthly pension of $10. He leaves a wife and 14 children - 10 under 13 years old.
