Picked up this Croydon jug recently and found that the vendor D Weston hung himself in 1895.





Here is the note.

An undated letter was found in his purse,
which read as follows
...
My memory's gone, and I cannot do my work. It is very
dreadful, but you will all do better without me than with me.
Oh, dear, what shall I do? Excuse more just now. Through
my folly the reins have fallen from my hands, and I can't pick
them up again. You,
my poor Lily, have been a good wife to
me. I never thought it would come to this, but that demon
suicide has haunted me for the last six months or more. It is
seldom from my mind. Why? Because of my sins. Then,
again, the business worries me. Oh, God! Why
was I born?
The Lord hath formed all things for Himself, even the wicked
for the day of evil. I have been an awful hypocrite, yet I
thought I was seeking the right way. Now everything is a
burden to me. My mind is quite correct to
know what I am
about,
but
as to figures it seems quite a blank. No one is to
blame but myself. I must close and wait for the opportunity,
but I am such an awful destable coward.

D.H. W.

Which goes to show that some bottles do tell a story however sad.

Could be an epitaph for Tony Blair.
