Sleep-Walking Out the Third-Story Window

Somnambulation.

On Monday night, a gentleman who lodges in a boarding house in Pearl st. arose in his sleep, leaped from the third story window, and walked some distance, without waking, until he was aroused from his unconscious state by a watchman. What is wonderful, he is not sensible of having sustained the least injury in the dangerous descent.

On Tuesday evening, at the same hour precisely, he made an attempt to repeat the leap, but was prevented by his fellow lodgers, just as he had raised the sash.
