Treasure Under Stone,
Dreamed Jan. 1774 by Daniel Healy
One Daniel Healy, of Donaghmore, in Ireland, having three different times dreamed that money lay concealed under a large stone in a field near where he lived, procured some workmen to assist him in removing it, and when they had dug as far as the foundation, it fell suddenly and killed Healy on the spot.
Just a little black humor for those readers who think (or think I think) all dream-advice is good advice. Nope.
