Saturday 15th August 1846

“Ornamental blind with collier and whippers at work, and bell and plate fixed: ‘Coal Office: Ring the Bell’ – zinc plate and bronze handle. A shocking murder was perpetrated about quarter past 12 this morning by JV Smith, man cook at the Guildhall Coffee House, King Street, Cheapside, on the body of Susan Tolledy, the kitchen maid, by cutting her throat in a fit of passion.”
