Sad End of a Shoemaker

SAD END OF A PIMLICO SHOEMAKER.

On Saturday Mr. George Collier held an inquest at the town of Ramsgate touching the death of Walter Smith, aged 46 years, a shoemaker, of 32, St. Leonard's-street, Pimlico. It appeared that the deceased for some three months past had been subject to hallucinations and went in fear of his life, so much so that he insisted on taking to bed with him every night a hammer and chopper to defend himself. On Tuesday fortnight he, accompanied by a son, went to Battersea-park; and, after staying there some time, he sent the lad home, though he did not go away but followed him on to Battersea-bridge, and then left him. Nothing more was heard of him until his body was picked up in the Thames, near Wapping, by Michael Quill, a lighterman. He had no monetary or other troubles, and had never intimated in any way that he was likely to take his own life. The jury returned a verdict, at the suggestion of the coroner, of "Found drowned."
