Death Of Sir Charles Bell

This distinguished surgeon died suddenly on April 29, 1842, at Hallow

Park, near Worcester, while on his way to Malvern. He was out sketching

on the 28th, being particularly pleased with the village church, and

some fine trees which are beside it; observing that he should like to

repose there when he was gone. Just four days after this sentiment had

been expressed, his mortal remains were accordingly deposited beside the

rustic graves which had attracted his notice, and so recently occupied

his pencil. There is a painful admonition in this fulfilment.
