John Nicol Farquhar (6 April 1861 – 17 July 1929) was a Scottish educational missionary to Calcutta, and an Orientalist. He is one of the pioneers who popularised the Fulfilment theology in India that Christ is the crown of Hinduism, though, Fulfilment thesis in Bengal was built on foundation originally laid in Madras by William Miller. He authored several books on Hinduism, notably, The Crown of Hindustan, A Primer of Hinduism, Gita and Gospel, and many alike.

His book on Ahmadiyya (1915)
On page 144 of his book on Ahmadiyya, he writes that MGA died of Cholera. This is interesting….we have an independent voice in India telling us that MGA died of Cholera.
“his (MGA’s) own death from cholera in 1908 formed a fitting climax to this series of fraudulent impostures” (see page 144, (https://books.google.com/books?id=dwceAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA144&lpg=PA144&dq=A+Revealed+Cure+for+the+Bubonic+Plague&source=bl&ots=lFh1C_yejr&sig=4CZ7GjAatAICtlfPCWHPc2o_m3w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjsveHZ7NbQAhUKKiYKHZONBs4Q6AEIITAC#v=onepage&q=A%20Revealed%20Cure%20for%20the%20Bubonic%20Plague&f=false)
The ROR of Sep-1912 quotes Farquhar
See page 393. He knew the Ahmadiyya community very well. They never objected to his comments about MGA dying of cholera.
