Death of Frank M. Bee

San Francisco Chronicle 23 June 1895
Frank M. Bee Dead
Frank M. Bee, son of F. A. Bee, the late Chinese Consul, was found dead at 1923 Pine Street last night. The cause of his death was due to natural causes. Young Bee was a single man, 40 years of age and kept bachelor quarters with his cousin Everett Bee, who is a merchant with offices at 109 California Street. Young Bee inherited wealth at the death of his father, which occurred three years ago.
He led a rather gay life after that time, and drank considerably of late. He had been ill for several months and was under treatment by Dr. Burgess until four weeks ago, when the physician himself became ill, and is now lying at the point of death.
Young Bee had no medical attendance since that time. Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock the Chinese boy whom he had in his employ to do the cooking and housework left Bee in his room until 7:30 o'clock last night. At that hour he went to Bee's room, and found him lying dead on the bed, with his clothes on fully dressed. Bee had evidently been taken with a bad spell, had thrown himself on top of the bedclothes and had expired in a short time.
The Coroner was notified, and removed the body to the Morgue. An inquest will be held to determine the cause of death.
NOTE: Dr. Burgess had been diagnosed with the grip (also known as influenza).
