Excerpt from Fifth Annual Report of the State Board of Health of Florida: Jacksonville, March 31, 1894 Before closing this subject it is desired to invite close attention to what the State Health Officer considers to have been an important, if not a principal, factor in pro ducing the state Of affairs at Pensacola, just noted, and as tending to create distrust and alarm on the part Of the nervous and hyper-suspicious portion Of the population Of that city. In July Captain Northup, Of the tug Echo, died from what, at that time, was said to be Typhoid Fe ver, but from what the clinical history as given by the consulting physician (the medical attendant was absent from the city when this information was obtained) clearly pointed to Congestive Malarial Fever. At the time Of the captain's death there does not appear to have been any suspicions aroused as to any contagious nature Of his sickness. Being a popular citizen a large concourse Of friends attended his funeral, the body having been pre viously embalmed by Undertaker, Mr. John C. Wood. Previous to the death Of Captain Northup he had been to Key West with his tug from which point he had towed to Pensacola for repairs a wrecked schooner, the Benj. Hale. It is also said in going to Key West the tug assisted over the 'bar at Charlotte Harbor an English tra'mp steamer ladened with phosphate. The schooner Benj. Hale with a cargo of barbed wire from Boston, went ashore April 18th, on the reef near Tortugas, and remained in a half sunken condition for weeks when she was raised and taken to Key West, where she was again partly submerged at the dock for several weeks more.
