- At the inquest on Henry Wm. Whitton, who poisoned himself, a verdict of suicide was returned, but there was no evidence to show the state of mind deceased was in. He was a victim of Black Wednesday, and had been here about 18 months in partial employment at the Insolvency Court. On a table in his room a paper was found, on which was written 'Sad end, but it must be, fate decrees it.' In a small pocket almanac under date of October 1, was written, 'Broken hearted; all hope gone; fate decrees the end; tried hard to avert this step; no chance of relief seems open; God help me.' On a page for October 29, was written 'Anniversary of the day that sealed my unhappy future.'
