Description: James Brady suffers gunshot woundDate: June 16 1898
Newspaper published in: Tucson
Dr. Purcell was called to Pantano on Monday and left on a special. The request was made as a result of the finding of James Brady, at his ranch out of Pantano, in a desperate condition, caused by the effect of a pistol shot thought to be accidental. The ball had passed through the throat and carried away a portion of the lower jaw and the tongue in its progress. There was evident marks of burning, the muzzle of the gun having been close to the head when the shot was fired on Saturday evening. The sloughing during two days, the doctor thinks, may have a serious effect, besides the patient is about 60 years of age. He is doing fairly well at the Sisters’ hospital.
James Brady has been in this section many years. He was a scout, soldier and at one time drove a team for Ed Vail. He has been keeping a place at Pantano in recent years and is widely known.
