Accident to Albert Robie
One of the saddest accidents that has occurred in our village for a long time, happened at the depot Tuesday noon. As the mail train from the north was coming the express office, Albert Robie, the head clerk in the office, sat on the truck carriage, on the depot platform waiting to receive the packages for the office. The train was moving along, and Mr Robie, as with his usual custom, propelled the truck along with his feet, still keeping his seat on the carriage, towards the front of the train, but by some means the tongue dropped to the floor and the truck took a turn toward the moving train. The truck was struck by the first car and was thrown between one of the iron posts, which supports the piazza, and the car and before Mr Robie could extricate himself he was wedged between the truck and the post, his left leg terribly crushed and lacerated above the knee, it being wedged within a space of four inches between the truck and post, and so tight the truck had to be cut away and the car pried over before he could be liberated. Dr Burns and Huckins were soon on the spot and all was done that could be for the injured man. Drs. Conn and Stillings of Concord were telegraphed and arrived about three o'clock on a special train. The surgeons are trying to save the left leg but there is a great deal of uncertainty about it as the jamming and resulting laceration was fearful. The right leg was badly bruised but no bones were found to be broken. He passed the night Tuesday, as comfortably as could be expected and remained so through the day, Wednesday. At this writing Dr. Burns, who is in charge of the case says Mr. Robie is as comfortable as could be expected in his critical condition. >The Plymouth Record, April 30, 1892, p7.

[1st Followup]
Albert Robie, who was so badly injured at the depot a few weeks ago, although not able to move much, is in the best of spirits, and hoping to be out again by the first of July. >The Plymouth Record, June 4, 1892, p7.

[2nd Followup]
Everyone knows of the terrible accident which happened to Albert Robie about five months ago, in which he came near to losing his left leg. We are glad to chronicle the fact that Mr. Robie is now able to attend to his duties at the express office, he having resumed his position there Oct. 1st. >The Plymouth Record, October 8, 1892, p5.

Albert S. Robie.

Mr. Robie left his work as shipper at the D. & M. factory Wednesday afternoon, as he was not feeling well. He suffered pain in the side during Wednesday night, and Thursday morning a physician was called, but his condition grew serious very fast.

Mr. Robie was 44 years of age, a son of the late James Robie and a native of Plymouth. He attended the village schools, was associated with his father at the express office, and following his father's death he was express agent here himself.

Smith of the Methodist Episcopal Church, assisted by Rev. Lorin Webster, rector of the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
