I bought this invoice on eBay, but the seller's house burned before it
was mailed, so now it's gone. This is the original photo from the

PLAINFIELD, Oct 5.—Made desperate
by the prospect of poverty after years of prosperity, George W. Tice,
a resident of Westfield, and formerly a New York business man,
committed suicide at his home last night by inhaling gas. His body
was discovered in the bathroom by his wife, and it was a first given
out that heart disease was the cause of death.
Mr. Tice was formerly head of the
manufacturing firm of Tice & Jacobs, Water Street, New York,
and his fortune at one time was estimated at $100,000. Business
reverses came, and a few months ago it became necessary for Mt. Tice
to get employment as a clerk. He is survived by a window and nine
children." —New York Times, Oct 6, 1907
