p.2 Death of a Local Notability - Hugh McLachlan died in Kingston Hospital, on Monday morning, at the age of 72 years. This man, who may not be generally recognized by his name, was known to almost everyone in Kingston, and to all who have been accustomed to journey up the Bay of Quinte, as "The Hermit". He lived in a secluded manner on one of the Brothers' Islands, and gained a sustenance by fishing. His curious abode used to be frequently visited by boating parties and was always pointed out to the curious among the passengers of the Bay steamboats. A few months ago, the Hermit took sick and left his barren sand keep of an Island to procure medical assistance in Bath. He was thence sent to Kingston Hospital, where he gradually sank under an affection of the kidneys. [News]
