The National Intelligencer, Tuesday, December 19, 1820
It has become our painful duty to announce the death of Nathaniel Hazard, Esquire, a Representative in Congress from the state of Rhode Island, after an illness of a few days only. He died on Sunday, about noon. His remains were interred yesterday afternoon, in the burial ground near the Eastern Branch, with the usual ceremonies; the corpse being carried to the Capitol at 1 o'clock, and the funeral procession moving thence, an hour afterwards. The pall-bearers were Mr. Culbreth, Mr. Parker, Mr. Tomlinson, Mr. Cannon, Mr. Culpepper, and Mr. Rogers. Both Houses of Congress, on the fact of his decease being made known to them, adjourned without proceeding further in business for that day.
The National Intelligencer, December 20, 1820
We omitted to mention in our notice of the death of Mr. Hazard that he came to this city in ill health.
