Sweet Adelaide, a Victorian Puzzle Solved

Symonds, Julian

£10.00

In 1886 Adelaide Bartlett was tried at the Old Bailey on the charge of poisoning her husband Edwin. In Sweed Adelaide Julian Symons offers an imaginative interpretation of this famous case, ending with a solution of an affair which remains a mystery. Did the adjective ‘sweet’ apply to Adelaide, or was she a cunning and deliberate poisoner? Was the Wesleyan Minister George Dyson just a platonic friend, or something more than that? And if Adelaide committed the crime, how did she do it?
