re Jackson


In an inquisition upon a lady named Miss Eleanor Jackson, it was proved that she alleged that people were hostile to her, and wanted to get hold of her property, and that under the influence of these delusions she was in the habit of writing letters to the Queen, the Lord Chancellor, the police, and various other persons. The jury found that the lady was incapable of managing her affairs, but was not dangerous to herself or others, the result of which verdict was that she was at once placed at liberty.
