Gravesend Reporter, North Kent and South Essex Advertiser 27 August 1859.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR.

THE RECENT INQUEST AT THE PEACOCK TAVERN.

SIR,

I am truly grieved to find the general belief is that my poor dear mother died through strangulation. If strangled, the appearance would indicate a change, instead of the placid sleep-like countenance which she had when a corpse. It is true a kerchief was on her throat, but not tightly tied. Doubtless, her death was a fit of paralysis, such as she had before; her age being 82 years was itself sufficient. By inserting this, you will greatly oblige,

Your humble servant,

Jane Barlow.

 

I have been informed that this unfortunately closed down on the 1st January 2024.
