Died Before He Got the Drink

New York, 1895

Frederick Miller, German, about 70 years of age, who has resided in Jamaica for years, went into the saloon of Leonard Deitz, on Beaver street, Wednesday morning, and took a seat at one of the tables and called for a drink. Before the drink could be brought to him he fell to the floor and died instantly. Miller has been a professor of music, and is reputed to have been wealthy once. He has no family.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, Jan. 25, 1895, p. 12.
