Huddersfield Daily Chronicle (26/Aug/1891) - In Memory of Catherine Dennis
IN MEMORY OF CATHERINE DENNIS, AGED 16 YEARS,
Who was Murdered at the Ivy Inn, near Huddersfield, During the Afternoon of Friday, August 21st, 1891
- Sweet maiden, thou art reft of life
Just in thy girlhood's bloom,
Some cruel monster has consigned
Thee to the silent tomb ;
And pity nils each tender heart,
While brooding o'er thy lot,
And many years will pass away
Ere thou art quite forgot.
- In Linthwaite's erewhile peaceful vale
long remember'd be—
A flower fair, of beauty rare,
While the base monster who has done
Such cruel wrong to thee,
Shall be regarded as a blot
On our humanity.
Newsome, August 24th, 1891.
