Henry J. Bright: ill

10 December 2013

517 A St. SE

Washington Post, 6 May 1906, p. 2.

[Name should be Henry J. Bright.]


Little Hope Felt for Recovery of William Bright.
Aged Man One of Two Survivors of the Body that Convicted Garfield’s Assassin.

William Bright, of 517 A street southeast, one of the two survivors of the jury that tried and convicted Guiteau for the assassination of President Garfield, is reported in a very critical condition, and fears of his death are entertained by his relatives. Mr. Bright, who is well advanced in years, has been confined to his room for the last two years by a wasting illness, and early last fall he was not expected to live. He rallied, however, but of late his condition has grown steadily worse.

Lieut. John Hammond, of the Capitol Police, is the only other survivor of the Guiteau jury.
