Punch,  47 (1864), 133.

Solution of a Difficulty



News-Commentary, Drollery


Archaeology, Comparative Philology

    Noting the existence and identity of two skulls of Oliver Cromwell, discusses the 'somewhat parallel case' of two different daggers being presented, at 'the Archaeological Meeting in Warwick', as that with which John Felton killed George Villiers (1st Duke of Buckingham). Punch attempts to explain why both William B P Feilding (7th Earl of Denbigh) and Thomas Thistlethwayte could claim to have inherited Felton's dagger.
