Bristol, Sept. 11, They write from Bath, that on Thursday last, the celebrated Miss Fanny Brado---k was found unfortunately hanged in her Golden-Girdle, at her Lodgings , in that City. By the Position of her Chair, and a Book lying on the Table, she had been reading, just before she committed the violent Act on herself. She was Daughter to the late General Brado—k, who, at his Death, left the above Lady, and her Sister 6000 l. but the latter dying about 4 Years ago, her Sister became Mistress of the whole Fortune, who, being a great Admirer of that hazardous Dependence, Gaming, lately met with some unlucky Chances, that bot deprived her of all her Fortune and Reason, and occasioned the unhappy Dilemma, above mentioned. It was observed, she had been heard to say, after the last stroke given to her Fortune, That no one should ever be sensible of her Necessities, were they reduced to the last Extremity. She is generally lamented by all that knew her, and was greatly esteemed for her courteous genteel Behaviour, and good Sense. The Coroner’s Inquest sat on the Body, and brought in their Verdict Lunacy.
