Suicide?

In a small garden attached to one of the houses in Little London,” says a writer, whose anecdote we give for what it is worth, *’ there was a flowerplot which was tended with peculiar care long after its original owners had gone the way of all flesh, and it was believed that the body of a young and beautiful female who committed suicide was interred here. The peculiar circumstances attending her death, and the locality made choice of for her interment, combined to throw a romantic interest over her fate and fortunes, and her story was handed down from one generation to another,”
