The Final Victim
Saturday, August 30, 1919
The final victim of the olive poisoning, Jessie Sanford, died. Reports on Mary Bates said that she was barely holding on.
The headline of The Alliance Review now referred to the dinner party as the “death banquet” as another victim is claimed.
Mrs. Sanford could not survive, even with injections of a serum that was tried on her as a last resort.
