    • News item, "The Wheeling Daily Intelligencer," Feb 7 1882, in its entirety:

      "Sleighing Accident
      Yesterday Prosecuting Attorney C. H. Scott, of Randolph county, accompanied bv Miss Susie Maxwell, the charming daughter of Senator Maxwell, of Doddridge county, decided to take advantage of the sleighing and enjoy a pleasant ride. At the corner of Maret and Twelfth streets several teams were massed together and Mr. Scott found it necessary to turn off sharp, and in doing ao he upset the sleigh and Miss Maxwell was thrown out. She fell on her left side and was considerably braised, besides having her left arm dislocated. She was so frightened that she was almost thrown into convulsions, but on being removed to her room at the Stamm House, had her arm set and was made comfortable, although she will be obliged to remain in her room for about, a week. Mr. Scott managed to jump so as to alight on his feet."
