Back ground;
President McKinley was shot in the abdomen on 5 Sept after giving a speech. The doctors used numerous unsterilized tools and unwashed hands to look around in his abdomen for the bullet. They never found it. As the President laid there trying to recover, he was OK at first, then his blood turned septic, and his intestines grew gangrenous. 

Before he died there were a few things the doctors sent runners out to buy to make the President more comfortable. One of the things on the list was Bay Rum ASL.

I have to wonder if it was for him to have a familiar scent on, or if the odors in the room were getting a bit ripe.
