Local Death (1905)

Dawn Potter

Mary M., deaf and dumb girl, age 38 yrs,
is the victim of flames.
Parents returned home to find her
lying in the throes of death.
This is one of the most pathetic accidents
that have ever happened in Fayette County.

[from Chestnut Ridge, a verse-history-in-progress of southwestern Pennsylvania]
