DEATH DURING A HEARTY LAUGH.--Mr. Baker held an
inquest at the Bricklayer's Arms. Gloucester-street, Mile-
end, Newtown, on the body of Elizabeth Walker, aged 40,
a married woman, who resided at No. 28, Nottingham
place, London. The deceased, on Saturday afternoon, was
in the company of a few friends, when, on a remark being
made by one of the company, she gave way to a hearty
laugh. In a minute after a quantity of blood flowed from her
mouth, which, in a moment after, gushed out. Mr. Shaw, a
surgeon of the neighbourhood, was sent for, but on his
arrival life was extinct. Verdict--"Died by the visitation
of God."

--The Cork Examiner, 23 November 1846
