Saturday 20th June 1846

“William Monk, brother to Henry Monk, an extensive charcoal dealer of Leeder Street, Chelsea, died about this time in Chelsea, aged about 48 years. He was afflicted with an asthmatical complaint, which at times he suffered much from. I am troubled with a terrible feverish headache, which, if it does not abate by Monday, I shall be unable to attend the office. Nine years since the accession of Queen Victoria to the throne, in commemoration of which the Park guns were fired. Mr Guest completes his 61st year.”
