George Mackenzie's Death


George Mackenzie dies suddenly during the 1834 cholera outbreak. John A. grieves the death of the man who had taught him so much and gave him his start in life. By this time, Macdonald is running a law office in Hallowell (Picton) for an ailing cousin. Now he begins re-establishing relationships with Mackenzie's clients in Hallowell, Napanee and Kingston. The following year he hangs out his own shingle in Kingston – one year before officially graduating as a lawyer.
