On Monday Dr. HARDWICKE held an inquiry at Chalk Farm Road as to the death  
of Elizabeth HALL, 31, wife of George Agustus HALL, a veterinary surgeon.

The evidence showed that the deceased had been annoyed by a report about  her
husband, which induced her to live apart from him, but ultimately she  
rejoined him and they dined together on Thursday last.

Mr. HALL stated that after dinner his wife made some remarks relative to a  
Mr. HALL, a brother-in-law, and immediately swallowed a quantity of prussic  
acid, from the effects of which she died.

The jury returned a verdict of “Suicide while suffering from temporary  
insanity brought on by the unkindness and neglect of the husband.”
