Newbury --- Dr. J. Albert Kimball who recently committed suicide at his office at West Twenty-sixth Street, New York, was formerly a resident of this town, living in the house now owned and occupied by Mrs. Jacob Worthern. He was a dentist of more than local fame, being the editor of a magazine "The Dentist Himself." On his desk was found a letter he had written before cutting his throat. It read:
Forgive me, my darling wife and friends. I must choose between death and a lunatic asylum. I prefer death. Pray, forgive me. I do this for your sake as much as mine.
With oceans of Love, Farewell.
God be pitiful to our children.
It is believed that Dr. Kimball had taken chloroform to deaden the pain before using the razor. He was moderately wealthy and was happy in his domestic relations. He was born 49 years ago at Kimball Hills, N. H., but has been in business in New York City several years.
