: Sudden Death of an Infant.—An inquest was held this afternoon, at the Arms, Gwydir-street, before Mr. Henry Gotobed, touching the death of Grace Emily Clark, aged eight months, daughter of Edward Clark, poulterer, of 61, Gwydir-street. The evidence given at the inquest showed that the child had a cold, and was subject to “wheezing,” but had not been so ill as to cause any serious apprehension. On Sunday morning, however, when the mother awoke, she found the child dead by her side. Mr. Apthorp, surgeon, who made a postmortem examination, was of opinion that the cause of death was bronchial complaints. A verdict accordingly was returned.
