Fasting Proved A Deadly Cure
Steele Scrapbook - January 4, 1886


PATTERSON, N. J., Jan. 4.—Word was received here this morning that Dennis Quigley, the faster, whose case was made public some time ago and who had taken no nourishment, save a cup of tea occasionally, for four months, died on Saturday at the Home for Incurables at Ridgewood, to which he was taken a short time ago from the Patterson Almshouse. Quigley suffered from paralysis of the stomach. He believed that he would recover his health by fasting.
