Duluth News Times, December 23, 1902.
This cautionary tale brought to you as my contribution to National Headache Awareness Month
, even though the latter strikes me as one of the most superfluous Awareness Weeks on the National Awareness Calendar. I mean, does anybody out there truly suffer from a headache awareness deficit?
I expect he was trying to say either "Hey, my headache's gone!" or "Ouch!" I hope for his sake it was the former.
The letter is a dead giveaway: This was no accident but a case of covert suicide. Question remains whether Potter took his fatal leap in search of headache relief, or whether the headache was pure pretext.
