EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....On Tuesday afternoon, an inquest was held at the Western Tavern, Lowestoft, before F.B. MARRIOTT, Esq., Coroner, on the body of Henry RACKHAM, aged 55, of No.6 Jacob Street. Esther RACKHAM, widow of the deceased, stated that her husband pageed from a visit to Wangford on Sunday afternoon, and took his tea about a quarter to five; he ate heartily, and was as cheerful and well as usual. He retired to rest about seven pm, and she followed shortly afterwards. He slept comfortably until about midnight, when he got up and struck a light, looked at his watch, and said it was about ten minutes past one o'clock. He then got into bed again, and shortly after she heard him make a great noise of choking. She spoke to him, but he could not speak. She raised his head, but he died immediately. She was greatly alarmed and called for assistance, and her neighbours, Mrs MARTIN and Mrs LEISTER went to her as quickly as possible. She went for Mr RAY, surgeon, who was soon there, but could do nothing. She had heard her husband formerly complain of shortness of breath and pain in his side, but for the past twelve months he had no medical attendance. During the last seven weeks he had been employed in filling ballast wagons for the Great Eastern Railway Company.---Mr RAY said he was sent for about 1.30 am. Went he went he found deceased quite dead, but warm. From what his wife had said as to his previous ailment, he should think deceased died from disease of the heart. Such work as filling ballast wagons would be likely to cause a person labouring under that disease to die suddenly. He believed death to be from natural causes. Verdict accordingly.
