FAREWELL NOTE READ AT BURRY PORT INQUEST. YOUNG GIRL'S DISTRESSING DEATH. An inquest was conducted at Burry Port on Wednesday by Mr. J. W. Nicholas, coroner, on Margaret Morgan (19), 12, Ash- burnham-road, Burry Port, whose i decapi- tated body was found on the G.W.R. line after the express train had passed on Sun- day night. Margaret Williams, the mother, said that her daughter, who was employed a.s a muni- tion worker, had been keeping company with a ycung mail named Cherry, a foreman at the munition worke. Deceased was at the wcrks on Wednesday, and Cherry sent her a mes- sage asking her to meet the 5.45 p.m. train at Llanelly the next day. She went, and on returning at midnight she cried. Next morning she said that Cherry had Fimsned witn nor, and appeared to be distressed. Witness did 11 not see her again. The Coroner Have you to!d us all you know about Cherry? Witness replied that deceased had said that Cherry was going to marry her in Feb- ruary. and she had everything ready for the wedding. Olwen Davies, Ashburnham-road, Burry I Port, said she knew the deceased by sight, and saw her on Sunday evening near the railway. At the time deceased was accom- ¡ panied by a young man. Witness could hot say who the young man was, but he was wearing a light ooa-t. Brynmor Jones..Cliff Bungalow, Bnrry Port, said that on Saturday night he saw deceased rn the Llanelly Great Western Rail- way plattorm. The Coroner: Did you Relit hr oÚ Sun da v ? No. James Cherry. 3, Amos-street. LJanelly, said he knew deceased w-fll, and had been keeping company with her. but they were not engaged. i*eceased sent him a, note on Thursday saying she was going to LI-nelly, and asked him to meet ber. He did so. and before parting they had a Jittle dispute, I but they parted the best, of friends: He was J at work from 5 p.m. on Sunday until 6 the following morning, and did not see the de- ceased after. Thursday. He had not mis- conducted himself with the deceased, to- wards whom his intentions were good. Mrs. Williams (recalled) said that the girl was not in trouble. .Evidence was given by P.S. Mitchelmore as to the finding of the body and a farewell note, which, with strands of deceased's hair, was tied with tape. The note was as fol- jows:- Dear Mother.—This line is the last, so I Good-bye to you all I for evermore, it is uhv the- -(this word w\ not legible)—of Cherry, so I am going. Py the time you will find this I will be killed. So good-bye for ever. Give my best love to Lizzie-a kiss for her. This (cup or cap)—is to be(worcl indist,ind 1- for Cherry. The Coroner said that it was impossible to say whether the note was a Itindly one to Cherry. There was nothing to show that it was one of anger,, or that it was harsh to- wards him, and it was difficult to put it to- gether on account of the words which were not legible. There were apparently no groiiiid,, for the rash act. The jury had clear evidence to that effect, and there shouLd be fairplay to Cherry, who. as fa.r as they could gather, had good intentions towards her. A verdict of "Suicide" was retuxned.
