Noted jurist shows improvement

Normally, a severe attack of pneumonia in a 77-year-old man would be ominous, but it appears that the Hon. Justice Riddell didn’t pass away until 1945. He was the author of The Slave in Upper Canada: History of the Underground Railroad, which dates to 1919 or 1920.

My searching also turned up this photograph of him from 1882.
