Thursday 23rd April 1846

“Died at the stables, Eccleston Wharf, after a strong fit of the gripes, the black horse last bought from a countryman near Oxfordshire about five months back. It was taken very bad at Willesden, where we sent a load of coals. It died seemingly in great agony. George Palmer, weigher and horse keeper, absent from Wharf through illness accompanied by a swollen face.”
