On the 7th inst., aged 63, Agnes DOCHERTY, wife of Farrah GALLAGHER, weaver, in Prestwich [sic – probably Prestwick]. For a long time past she had experienced a difficulty in swallowing any solid food, and for fifteen weeks previous to the closing up of the passage she was supported on milk and water alone, with occasionally a little whisky made into toddy. The passage closed up completely on the 14th or 15th of June last, and since then no sustenance of any description passed into the stomach, and every attempt to administer nourishment in any other way entirely failed. The sensation of hunger, which was very strong, entirely ceased on the closing up of the passage; and for twenty-three or twenty-four days she continued in that state, free not only from pain, but from any other bodily ailment whatever, the vitality of the body being sustained for that length of time solely by its own internal resources, and that too when these resources had been greatly attenuated and exhausted by the comparative starvation of the five or six months preceding. The only uneasiness felt was a sensation of heat in the throat, which was from time to time allayed by swallowing a mouthful of cold water, which, however, she could never retain beyond a few seconds, when it was thrown up again. This, together with latterly and occasionally moistening of the palms of the hands with water, when she felt inclined to faint, was the only external source from which, and that by absurption merely, it was possible she could receive nourishment for the last three weeks of her life. She all along was in a very happy frame of placid Christian resignation, and it is in compliance with her own humble request that this account is made public.—Ayr Advertiser.
