"The many friends and neighbours here in Little Sands regret to hear of the death of one of Little sands fine old gentlemen, in the person of Mr. Neil MacDonald, who passed away at Mrs. Cook's, Belle River, on Tuesday evening. Mr. MacDonald was in his 89th year. Doubly sad is it for the relatives as his brother John passed away one month previously. Two of Little Sands fine old gentlemen have passed on and we here will cherish their memory."
