Mann, Elizabeth (1789–1806)

Same day [3 October] died at the house of Mr. Robert Sidaway, Elizabeth Mann, an orphan aged 17 years, during the latter 5 [years] of which she had laboured under the joint afflictions of insanity and a severe paralytic affection by which she was deprived of speech, and rendered perfectly helpless. Her long protracted sufferings have been a subject of grievous contemplation to many, who but six years since remembered her no less remarkable for her vivacity and placid disposition than for her subsequent excessive toils upon the bed of anguish: And yet Providence did not totally relinquish its protection to an unfortunate daughter of adversity in the benevolence of a friend she found an asylum, a careful guardian, and an ample ministrations to her necessities, until it was the will of Heaven to terminate her sufferings.
