Drowning of a Man and a Woman

Yorkshire Gazette August 3, 1839

The body of a woman was discovered near Kilnhurst, floating on the surface of the water. The body of a man who was, we understand, also found in the neighbourhood.

We could record numerous circumstances, each alike distressing and lamentable, but by doing so we should neither lessen the injury that private individuals have received, nor alleviate the distresses of those who will eventually be the greatest sufferers.
