W HAT follows is a fact well
known in the neighbourhood
'' of Berkhamftead.—A few Sundays
ago, fotpe choice fpirits from London
were4*egaling at an inn, when after
dinner the liquor introduced the love
of frolic : after the burning of hats
> and wigs, it was propofed to draw lots
which of the company fliould be hang-
Mcd, and during the courfe of the bottle
it was demonftrated to the fatisfa6lion
of the whole company, that it was
death without pain. The lot fell up-
'bn a young man who had but juft cn-
jWred upon the fortunate eftate of a
-^bankrupt ; however, whether he
thought the advantages of bankruptcy
not To great as is in general believed,
or he wifced to be in the fafliion of go
ring out of the world in a ftring, he
^determined to die hard, to die like a
cock. A convenient place in the room
prefented itfelf ; and in an inftant his
own gaiters furniflied the noofe; the
knot was fixed, and the chair in a mi
nute knocked from under him, but
whatever was theopinion before about
' his death being without pain, the vo-
i;luntcer criminal made fuch kicking
againft the wainfeot, that the landlord
/was brought into the room by the
noife, where he faw the company al-
xnoft as black in the face with laugh-
, ing as the young man was with the
agonies of death. The landlord, afto-
; niftied and diftrelTed at the fight, cut
down the almoft expiring youth, and,
with the afiiftance of a furgeon, and
■ proper care, he is fince recovered, and
i at is remarkable, that the firft words he
fpoke after he rixovered, was, Fll be
[banged ij ever I do the like again.
