Subject: happy? – Feb 17 (Mary Ann Wyatt killed)
From: Abby Sale

On 2/17/1845 Mary Ann Wyatt was killed by her husband of one week, Henry Green.
Seems he preferred his old girlfriend after all:

        My wife, she felt quite ill one night and begged me to get some pills;
        I went and got some opium and made that into pills.
        I then gave her just three of them, and told her they were right,
        And surely thought that she would die upon that very night.

                "The Murdered Wife," Olive Woolley Burt, American Murder Ballads
