Mrs. Hawkins dies of fright

Post by Karen on Fri 11 Jan 2013 - 8:09


A correspondent says: - The other morning the inhabitants of Willow-walk, a narrow turning out of the High-street, Walthamstow, were alarmed by the news being spread that "Jack the Ripper" had paid a visit to one of the houses in that thoroughfare. In that street is a marine storedealer, kept by a Mr. Robert Hawkins. It appears that early one morning a tall, rough-looking man knocked at the door, and, on Mrs. Hawkins opening it, said to her, "Is the governor in?" Mrs. Hawkins said, "No, he has gone to London, but he will be back some time this morning." He then said, "Do you want any bootlaces?" but on Mrs. Hawkins declining, said, pushing against her, "You don't know me; I am Jack the Ripper." The poor woman, being in a delicate state of health, fell down fainting. Had she been able to call out, Mr. Hawkins' men, who were working at the back of the shop, would have been able to capture the scoundrel; as it was, he made good his escape. Mrs. Hawkins was put to bed, but died in her confinement, accelerated by the fright she received, as the doctor said.
