Shot at Miss Abbott

New York, 1895

Miss Annie Abbott, who lives with her widowed mother in Farmingdale, had a narrow escape from injury Friday evening. She took a lighted lamp into the front room and was drawing the window shades when there was a report of a pistol and a bullet crashed through the window above her head. Only one shot was fired.
