Mr Thompstone and his wife had been out driving on that day with a horse borrowed from a neighbour, and after returning home, Mr Thompstone left the house to return the horse to its owner. When he again reached home Mrs Thornpstone was not there, and receiving no answer to his repeated calls, he went to the river — only a short distance from the house — and found the unfortunate lady partly in and partly out of the water, but quite dead. At this spot the river is about 3ft 6in deep, and it is supposed that when going to draw some water Mrs Thompstone fell into a fit, to which she had lately been subject, and overtopping into the river, her final struggle, when completely exhausted, placed her in the position in which she was found. On the body being taken out everything possible was done, and Dr Symes sent for, but the unfortunate woman was beyond all hope."
