I am deputy medical officer at Holloway Prison—the prisoner has been under my supervision since August 26th—shortly after her admission I examined her—she was in an exhausted and melancholic condition and suffering from a complete loss of memory of events up to August 25th—she had a bruise behind her left ear and a small one on her left wrist—both appeared to be recent—events which happened on and after August 25th she remembered imperfectly—prior to that her mind was a blank—during the first six days she improved slightly—up to September 3rd there was very little change in her mental condition—on that date she began to realize her position and what she was charged with—I again visited her on the 4th—she told me her memory had returned suddenly during the night; she said she had had a shock—she said she remembered having given her children their breakfast, but after that nothing, until she was arrested at Hampton—in the course of my inter

<hi rend="italic">post mortem</hi> examination on the deceased, on August 1st—I agree with Dr. Rees as to the condition—this knife was handed to me—its longer blade would produce the wound which I found on the deceased—on the blade I observed recent scratches on both sides which indicated the knife had been cleaned by rubbing it on a stone; besides the scratches, in three places on the long blade, and in one place on the smaller blade, I found reddish-brown films, which were firmly adhered to the steel—I also found in the space left for the point of the blade some black fluff, rubbed the lining of a pocket, and some tobacco leaves—I came to the conlusion that the films had been occasioned by mammal blood—Re-examined it under a microscope—in the thumb mark, used for opening the knife, I found a little reddish-brown lump, which on examination appeared to be composed of blood cells and also very large cells such as form the covering of the skin; I should say where the skin is tender—I think it was the skin of a human, they were human epithelium cells—I had the deceased's clothes given me for examination—I have measured the size of the penetrating holes—I think he was wearing a black serge jacket, waistcoat, trousers, woollen pants,</p>

<p>shirt, and woollen vest—the cut in the outside clothes fitted exactly the width of the knife, which is 1/2 m.; the other clothing did not fit so well because it expanded more—I examined Devanny's clothing—I think the cuts in his clothing may have been caused by the same instrument, although the clothes had been washed and the cuts stitched up—I examined the stains on the lining of the prisoner's waistcoat—I found on the left half a series of six reddish brown slightly glistening smears, which on microscopic and other examination appeared to have been caused by mammal blood—the scratches on the knife are subsequent to its receiving the stains.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> The blade of the knife had been cleaned from two-thirds downwards right to the point—I submitted the spots to the microscopical examination—at the present state of medical science it is impossible to say what animal the blood came from, only that it is the blood of a mammal—it is an ordinary knife—I cannot give a definite date as to when the spots on the knife were produced—I cannot pledge myself as to when the spots came upon the prisoner's waistcoat.</p>

I am a registered medical practitioner at 8, Doughty Street—I have known this family some years, and the daughter as an intemperate young woman—I was called to the house about 4 p.m. on August 2nd—I found the deceased lying on her back on the floor with her head towards the window, fully dressed, dead, and quite warm—on examining her I found a bruise on the right side of her neck—the room was in disorder—two vases were lying on the bed, and a palm had been rooted out of a pot and the earth was hanging about it—the palm was about 3 ft. high—the next day I examined the deceased with Dr. Connor—there was nothing to cause death externally—there was another bruise on the other side of her neck in a similar position to the other, but further back—that had come out since I saw her last—she had a slightly black eye. but that was old—the only symptoms connected with death were the marks on her neck—the cause of death was strangulation caused by external pressure and inter
<lb/>ference with the entrance to the lungs—the marks on her neck would explain such pressure—I saw the bruise on her right side caused by a right hand thumb, and an abrasion caused by a nail—the mark that came out afterwards was probably caused by the lingers.</p>

<p>was a broken flower pot in the room—the palm would not cause the injury, it was not heavy—the deceased's liver was enlarged caused by excessive drinking—the weather was exceedingly hot—the woman's stomach was loaded with food—the hot weather to a person who had been drinking would conduce to a fit, but not to epilepsy—if the glottis closed that would have caused suffocation—supposing she had violently attacked the prisoner and he got her by the throat, not having used sufficient force to strangle her, a fit coining on, a hot day, and the stomach being full of food, death might possibly happen.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Re-examined.</hi> I think that it was hardly likely that the prisoner could have strangled her in an upright position without two hands—I only found the marks of one hand.</p>
