Suicide by Wynn Westcott (1885)

A rare work by the deputy coroner of the central Middlesex.

"It has been seriously discussed in America, whether or not a believer in spiritualism is not  isop facto mad (Beckham) but without going to that extreme point of view, it is most wise to bear in mind that many cases of lunacy and many suicides have been assigned to this cause" (p140).

From Charles Rosher to Mrs Wieland (Ethel Archer)

Friday 8th Oct 1915

My dear Soror
                I expect to be in your neighbourhood at about one o'clock tomorrow and propose to call, and hope you will be in. I cannot keep my thoughts from Bunco and, strangely, from A.C. but only by way of comparison. Who -- of these twain --is the real Guru? A.C. & F.H. ought to be hung on a sour apple tree -- or given over to the tender mercies of Horatio Bumley and his barbarians.
            I have my ticket of embarkation notice and shall not have to leave until Tuesday morning when I will go by the special from Paddington at 11.5. or from Euston 12.5.  If you are disposed for an airing you might accompany me to Streatham and Croydon.
   Soror -- trust in love and kind thoughts -- we are glad your sister is with you

                                                            Fraternally yours
