Sudden Death-- Early this morning a man named Jno. Slaven, a glass blower at Slane's Glass Works, South Boston, walked, apparently intoxicated, down Hasley's stone yard on Federal (late Sea) street, and asked for a place to lie down. He was allowed to lie down in a shed, and soon fell asleep. About 10 o'clock it was found that he was dead. Coroner York was called in and will hold an inquest.

Boston (Massachusetts) Traveler, May 26, 1856.
