    FROM THE WEST BRITON DATED 7 OCT 1842
    CORONER'S INQUEST
    On Monday last, at the Western Inn, Truro, by adjournment from the day before, when the 
    jury assembled for the purpose of viewing the body of James YELLAND, aged 25 years. It 
    appeared that on Saturday, the 24th ultimo, the deceased and some friends had been 
    drinking until a late hour at one of the retail beer-shops in Truro, and on their way 
    home, the former, who was very tipsy, was catching hold of each of his companions by 
    turns, and appeared inclined to wrestle with them. In their way home, they were joined 
    by a person called Henry Laverton who knew the deceased well, and thought he could lead 
    him home quietly. He attempted to do so, when the deceased began to wrestle with him 
    also, and before he could get away from him, they both fell together; but the deceased 
    fell on his back, and the back part of his head came in contact with the curb-stone of 
    the pavement, and stunned him. He was then carried home, and he died the following 
    Thursday evening. There were various reports in circulation as to the cause of death, 
    and the circumstances attending it in this instance, which rendered an inquiry before 
    the coroner more particularly necessary; but it appeared quite clear from the evidence 
    that there was no fighting or angry feeling between the parties in question, and that 
    the fall and injury were accidental. Verdict accordingly.
