in consequence of the missive, Carol Sheild's speculation, penned by helena6
She makes the argument that It's probable that Eliza died of breast cancer (or cancer that spread from breast cancer), and since there is though to be a genetic-family linbk in these kinds of cancers, it is quite possible that JA died of it too. However, she doesn't go any deeper than that...I was wondering if anyone knew of any writing that makes a clearer case for something other than Addison's disease.
