  • "Once Prosperous Business Man Feared to Face Poverty.
    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 Mr. Tice to get employment as a clerk. He is survived by a window and nine children." —New York Times, Oct 6, 1907
1899 invoice from Tice & Jacobs
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 auction, used with permission.
