THOMPSON, Daniel – (d. 1867)

Sudden Death — A student from Trinity College, Mr. Daniel THOMPSON, son of Mr. Franklin THOMPSON, of Onslow County, died suddenly in this city on Sunday last.  He was on his way home, was taken sick suddenly at Hillsborough, was taken from the cars at Raleigh, conveyed by Dr. SMITH to the military hospital, and carefully and kindly cared for until he died. 

Regret is expressed, and justly, that some one did not send him to a hotel, but he had every attention from Dr. SMITH.  His case was apoplexy.  We have these facts from Mr. LEACH, of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, who took an interest in the young man and assisted in his burial.
