Saturday 19th September 1846

“Saw the Swiss Giantess this evening – as I found since, for the last time – in Leicester Square, whereupon she spoke to me concerning the above fire.”


[Editor’s note:  The Swiss Giantess was probably appearing at one of many shows and exhibitions in Leicester Square. Nathaniel notes her suicide on 7 October.]
