"I've developed into quite a swan. I'm one of those people that will probably look better and better as I get older - until I drop dead of beauty.
Rufus Wainwright

Newspaper Articles
"On Saturday evening the dwelling house of William Hill, retail brewer, near Upper Gornal, was entered by the bed room window, and about 12, in gold and silver, one gold ring, and a silver lever watch and chain attached, stolen. There are already two men in custody on suspicion of being concerned in the robbery, but the property has not been found. They will be brought before the Magistrates tomorrow. During the previous night there was stolen from a cottage, being erected near the Park Hall, about 70lbs, of lead spouting, the property of Lord Ward. The thieves are still at large."
