Description: Fatal Folly.

Date: June 25 1860

Newspaper published in: Albany,N.Y.

A young daughter of Riley TAIT, of Camden, Ala., found in his house an old pistol, that had not been used for some length of time, and thinking to amuse her little sister, snapped the pistol in her face. After snapping once or twice, the pistol fired, and the ball shot through the baby's hand, and entered the forehead, just above the eye, causing death.
