Among the more curious cases is the wealthy Eliza Coulson, whose cause of death was recorded as being from eating bad beef and dubious dumplings in 1868.

Right. Death by food poisoning. In 1868. Curious. Riiiight.

Moriarty and Holmes. One of the most desperate attempts by a writer to kill off a character in a series of stories. Unfortunately, when the queen loves your work you kinda have to keep writing.

Man, one thing about people in the 19th century is that they sure had nice handwriting!
2013-06-26 04:31:55 PM  
Ditto on that pretty handwriting.  And is that with just a nib and ink well?
