Dickson, John (1821–1851)

Another inquest was held on the same day at the Crispin Arms, Clarence-street, on the body of John Dickson, a man who had got his living by singing until habits of intemperance had reduced him to a state of dependence on the charity of others. Dr. Tierney gave it as his opinion that internal disease, brought on by drinking, was the cause of death. Verdict — died from the effect of previous habits of intemperance.
