Adna died yesterday morning at 1/2 past 2 O'clock & was entombed in the family tomb at 6 o'clock on the same day. He was buried from M. & F. Burrs house. He has been unwell all winter, the work men have not been to work in the Dry Dock this winter & he went in to the shed to hammer stone & the dust gave him a bad cough, when spring opened they commenced on the dock again, & we had 3 weeks of Easterly winds & mist, by which he took a bad cold, & last week he took medicine one night, & went to work the next day, & that was the last day he labored, & 2 days before he died he was attacked very violent, & the doctors could get no phisic to operate upon him by which, he chocked & died. Yours- Benj'm Thomas Jr. NB your brother died in Charlestown & was brought to Hingham by a sail boat- Brother Thomas attended the funeral."
