TitleWilliam John Thoms
DescriptionALS thanking Marshall for all the information concerning John Roseberry, from the Bedford Mercury. Considers his case "the most outrageous" of hundreds he has had sent to him, & promises to mention it in a forthcoming paper on 'Exceptional Longevity: its Limits and Frequency'. Mentions the stranger case of John's wife, who died aged 99, having had 17 sons & 5 daughters; her 16th child was 17 years younger than herself, thus she must have been the mother of 16 children by the age of 17!
