Suicide of a Compositor

Post by Karen on Tue 26 Jul 2011 - 14:45

SUICIDE OF A COMPOSITOR.

Yesterday Mr. George Collier held an inquest at the Hope tavern, Banner-street, St. Luke's, on the body of Mr. Nathaniel James Fage, aged 63, of Peerless-street, City-road, a compositor. Mrs. Harriet Fage, the widow, deposed that four years ago the deceased fell from an omnibus, since which time he had been very strange in his manner. He had never been under restraint, however, and never threatened to commit suicide, but he suffered from intense pains in the head. On Wednesday morning she left him in bed awake, and she never saw him again alive. Caroline Maskell deposed that on going to the house at dinner-time, she was informed that the door of the deceased's room was fastened, and on its being broken she saw him hanging from a nail in the wall. She was so dreadfully frightened that she ran away, as did also her mother, father, and the wife of the deceased. A man named Robert Tracy was summoned from a house opposite, and he cut down the deceased. The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide whilst of unsound mind."
