Talk:Sheriff Hill Lunatic Asylum
Mistakes in original quote?

An epileptic lunatic escaped from Mr. Kent's asylum at Gateshead Fell...He was immediately pursued but was not retaken...He escaped on the saturday night and on the Monday after his escape he murdered his wife and his daughter in a violent paroxysm of eplileptic [sic?] mania, in a most savage and horrid manner. This wretched man is now a furious criminal maniac...
