A quote from the Mistress of Charlecote
The Memoirs of Mary Elizabeth Lucy, 1803 – 1889
“ The 315th Birthday of Shakespeare marked the opening of
the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre at Stratford-on-Avon. Many
noted actors came down from London for the week to act in
some of his plays. The weather was bitterly cold and wet so
I was unable to attend until the last evening, when we all
went to the comedy “As You Like It” one of my favorite
plays of Shakespeare. My dear grandchildren were wild with
delight when in Act Two Scene One, the Forest of Arden, a
Charlecote deer (which their Papa, as requested, had shot
for the occasion) appeared on stage, and Masters, the
Charlecote keeper dressed up as a forester, led on two deer
hounds. The effect was charming and the house rang with
shouts of applause and encore.

since the March of 1917, so he had been with them for about

trouble and had suffered from occasional fits of
depression. On Saturday evening Enos returned from shopping
with his wife he went out again, he came back at about 8
o’clock and went to his room and shut the door. Shortly
afterwards the witness heard a sound as if the deceased was
vomiting. He went in and found him sitting on the side of
the bed. The deceased said “There you are I’ve done it”
witness asked “What” and pointing to a glass he replied
“Taken that”. A glass an empty packet of vermin killer and
two full packets were on the table in front of him. The
witness gave him emetics and sent for the doctor.
The coroner asked “Was there anything to worry him?” the
witness replied “Nothing whatever, but he seemed a bit
strange in his manner”.
Coroner “Did he ever threaten to commit suicide?” Witness
“Never as long as I’ve known him”
The doctor called to see the deceased at 8.30 p.m., he
found him lying on the bed fully clothed and dead. There
was a glass next to him containing sediment. An empty
packet and two similar packets labelled vermin killer. In
