of oar own. The first is that of a gentle—
man . named L-- G--, a Scotcbman
by birth, but err.igrating early in life to Ja
maica, became from long residence, as it
were a native. Happening to be attacked
with fever, after a few days he was suppo.
read to be dead, and the body abandoned
by the medical attendant. From the rap—
id decomposition 7, hich animal substances
undergo immediately as the phenomena of
life cease to manifest themselves, in the
West Indies, interment generally takes
I place very soon after the breath leaves the
body; and accordingly, in twenty-four
hours cram the time of his supposed
death, tl.is gentleman was shrouded and
put in a coffin. Fortunately, however,
for him, the preparations for the funeral
were delayed for some hours, and when
the undertaker proceeded to screw down
the coffin, those about him perceived a
moisture on the skin. This led to further
examination, and it was discovered that
he was alive. Remedies ware instantly
resorted to, and lie recovered and lived
many years afterwards to tell the story,
A melancholy event, however, was con—
nected with his recovery. A young fe—
male who had assisted to make his shroud
arid cap, whether flout over•exertion, anx
iety, or the malignant nature of the fever,
tell ill as he recovered, died, and was bur—
ied in the same shroud which she had
made fir him a few days before.
