Duluth News Times, December 23, 1902.

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.
