Edward Lear
"There was an Old Man with an owl,
Who continued to bother and howl;
He sate on a rail,
And imbibed bitter ale,
Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl.
Edward Lear

Newspaper Articles
"The investigation into the cause of the death of the boy Flavell, who died last Wednesday from the alleged effect of a dose of whiskey, was resumed at the Limerick Inn, Lower Gornal, on Tuesday. The medical evidence went to show that on a post-mortem examination being made, the brain was very soft and congested, and the left side of the lungs gorged with blood. In the stomach were large particles of inflammation, and it contained about three ounces of fluid, but no spirit. On opening the abdomen, it was found to be healthy, but the bladder was distended with clear urine. The Jury, after a short deliberation, returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence, which was, that the deceased died from taking about half a glass of whiskey and water. The gentlemen alluded to in our previous report were exonerated, but it was thought the father of the boy was blameable for not sending for medical aid sooner."
"The Lat Shocking Death of a Boy" in
Birmingham Daily Post 20th July 1859
