He Crept In A House To Die
Philadelphia, 1892

HE CREPT IN A HOUSE TO DIE.

About four o'clock yesterday afternoon Baboo Sudal, 47 years old, a native of Calcutta, who has been in the city a short time was found in an empty house at 287 south Twelfth street suffering from an attack of pneumonia, complicated with the grip. The man said he had no home, and believing he was going to die made his way into the house in order that he might be sheltered during the night. The patrol wagon was summoned and he was sent to the Philadelphia Hospital, where he will receive every attention. The doctors pronounced him a very sick man, but expressed the belief that he would recover.
