William A. Petersen, the German tailor in whose house the president died, accidentally took too much laudanum (a mixture of alcohol and opium derivatives) on June 19, 1871. He was found by Washington police on a park bench. The police took him to the station where they tried to pump his stomach. However, it was too late, and Petersen passed away. Petersen's wife, Anna, died exactly four months later. The Petersens were buried in Washington in Prospect Hill Cemetery.

I can't thank you enough for helping President Lincoln in his time of need. I was in Washington D.C. a couple of years ago and I saw your house. It is a peaceful place. I think that the president needed to pass away there. It is what he would have wanted.
