How did poe really die?

-- Anonymous, March 23, 2001


Dear Lacy, it was thought that Poe died from excess of alcohol, but a few years ago when i was in college a teacher handed out copies of an article from some medical journal theorizing that Poe had died from a rabies bite. Some places say that it was from exposure and encephalitis.
