Croup casualties in Fetteresso

The following distressing case of uncommon mortality has occurred within ten days in the family of James Cruickshanks, at Lochfaulds, parish of Feteresso.  Six of his children, out of seven, have all died of the croup within that short period.  The three last were buried on Sunday, and the unhappy father and his remaining child are now dangerously ill.
