She Tried To Drown Herself
1892 Morbid Scrapbook


A woman who gave her name as Mamie Williams, and who is about thirty-eight years of age, attempted suicide yesterday afternoon by trying to jump in the Delaware at Pine street. She had been seen wandering aimlessly along the streets by a young man named Thomas Morley, of 204 Stampers street. She told him she was tired of life because her mother was dead, and she intended to kill herself. He notified Policeman Malatesta, and the two followed her, and just as she was about to jump into the water they grabbed her and took her to the Third district station-house..
