Pratt, Dr.


Pratt, Dr.
   In “The Horror in the Burying-Ground,” an old physician who, summoned to the Sprague house after Tom Sprague has suffered some kind of fit, pronounces Sprague dead and hands the body over to Henry Thorndike, the undertaker. Later Pratt is disturbed by suspicions that Sprague is not in fact dead. Shortly thereafter he declares Thorndike dead after the latter suddenly takes ill at Sprague’s funeral.
