Monday 20th April 1846

“(From the Times newspaper) ‘Melancholy Event’. Died on the 20th instant in her 31st year of rapid consumption, Ann, the beloved wife of Mr Henry Oliver Nodes of No 7 Chapel Street, Tottenham Court Road. A former mistress of mine whose service I left about May 1842 owing to a misunderstanding arising between us, in which she called me a fool, to which I made answer ditto, hastily, but unmeaningly, and which insult she never forgave me, but had me discharged forthwith without notice but with a week’s wages instead.”
