"People go to church for the same reasons they go to a tavern: to stupefy themselves, to forget their misery, to imagine themselves, for a few minutes anyway, free and happy."

"An Inquest was held on Wednesday afternoon, at the Grand Turk Inn, Ludgate Hill, by Dr. Birt Davies, the Coroner, respecting the death of a child, six years of age, named George Bradbury, who resided with his parents at 30 Court, 6 house, Livery Street, and which, occurred in the painful manner stated here : About five to eleven on Saturday morning last, the mother of the deceased went out to get some potatoes for dinner, leaving her eldest daughter, aged ten, and another child aged three, in the house with the deceased, who was then sitting on an armchair. The eldest child, who gave her evidence in a very clear manner, stated that soon after her mother had gone out the two children, William and deceased, quarrelled, and fought. Immediately after the youngest child, William, got a piece of paper, which he lighted, and applied to the clothes of the deceased, which were Instantly in a blaze. The witness, seeing this, tried to extinguish the flames, but could not succeed. The deceased then ran out into the yard, and man, who lives next door, came and extinguished the flames by enveloping the child in a bag. The little girl stated that she was quite certain that her brother William set the deceased on fire on purpose. On finding that the child was severely burnt, a woman who came up took the deceased to the General Hospital. After the sister's evidence had been heard, the Coroner called the attention of the Jury to the fact that, though done intentionally, a child three years of age was not responsible for its actions. Mr. Bracey, house surgeon at the hospital, stated that the deceased was admitted into that Institution the same day. He was then severely burned upon nearly the whole surface of the body. He never rallied, and died on the same evening. He had since made a post-mortem examination of the body of the deceased, and gave his opinion that he died, from the effects of the bum, by congestion of the lungs. After the Coroner had summed up, the Jury returned a verdict of "Homicide by misadventure."
