Peter Cameron's Remorse

Remorse and Laudanam in the Daily Alta California, Volume 81, Number 155, 2 December 1889:
Victoria, B. C, December 1st.— Late last night Peter Cameron, a young machinist living in Nanaimo, committed suicide at the door of a young widow to whom he had been engaged. After the betrothal was broken off Cameron blackened her character by stories he circulated; then regretting his action he tried to effect a reconciliation, but failing in this he swallowed a dose of laudanum and died at her door holding her photograph in his hands.

Name Peter Cameron
Event Type Death
Event Date 30 Nov 1889
Event Place Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Gender Male
Age 38
Birth Year (Estimated) 1851
Birthplace , Scotland

Another newspaper's account (December 2, 1889, Vancouver Daily World, Page 4):

He Loved too Well. An estrangement of lovers was the cause of the sad suicide of Peter Cameron in Victoria on Saturday night from drinking laudanum. Cameron had fallen irrevocably in love with a widow named Mrs. McDonald and they had become engaged, but a quarrel arose. Cameron circulated damaging stories about his former love, but finally repented and sought a reconciliation. Mrs. McDonald would not renew the engagement and Cameron choosing death rather than rejection, took a dose of laudanum at a gateway on Quadra Street from which he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital where be died in two hours.
