p ATlIETIC LETTER OF A SUICIDE. At Hammersmith on Monday Mr. Drew (coroner) held an inquiry with reference to the death of Edward Herbert Dalton, aged 29 years, a coffee-house keeper, lately residing at 26, Blythe-road, West Kensington, who committed suicide by shooting himself with a revolver on Thursday. Subsequently, in his bedroom was found the following letter, addressed to his wife, who was from home owing to illness:- 26, Blythe-road, Hammersmith. My darling Wife,—I can stand this life no longer. To be called a murderer and to be accused of trying to cause your death has upset me, and the thought is more than I can tolerate. However, your father may alter his opinion now, for a more loving and true fausba-nd never lived. You, I (know, can speak different. Your people have done all they could for us. Everything on the premises I leave to you, my darling wife, Alice Dalton. I should like to be buried with my brother Charlie- that is, if Arthur does not mind. If he says no, put me as near as possible to. our dear little daughter at Ku'.ibpad. Tf you marry again do not part with your wedding ring. You will say I am out of my mind, but it is not so. May you have a life of prosperity.—Your loving husband, TED. The widow, who appeared greatly affected, said there was no truth in the statements in the deceased's letter. He was a kind husband, and had been greatly worried by her long ill- ness, and it was at his wish that she went away to get better. A verdict of "Suicide whilst tem- porarily insane" was returned.
