Cambridge: Melancholy case of drowning.
On Good Friday afternoon, Mr. Henry Gumbleton of the firm Gumbleton Brothers, shoemakers, Cambridge, met with a fatal accident while in a canoe upon the River Cam. He was endeavouring to get away from the overflow of water at Bottisham Locks, when his boat upset and he was drowned. He was only 28 years of age, and much respected at Cambridge as a tradesman. At an inquest held on Saturday, a verdict of “Acidentally drowned” was returned.
