Punch,  40 (1861), 67.

A Post Obit Prosecution





Hospitals, Patronage, Crime, Politics, Spiritualism, Government

    Discusses an extract from a Morning Post article announcing that the 'long mismanagement of the Hospital of St Cross [...] is about to be brought before Parliament by petition', a petition that seeks to 'cancel the leases granted by Lord Guildford of the Hospital property'. Points out that Lord Guildford has recently died, thus problematizing the idea of bringing 'him to book', unless they use a medium to 'rap out his answer to the charge of fraud'. Anticipates that the petitioners will have to bear the loss of property.
