    Great to see, Kev! This is what is known as a broadside ballad. Such ballads, comprising a song or poem, were very popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and often covered crimes and executions. Mrs. Maybrick was the subject of one or more such songs.

    The title of course is "Sorrowful" not "forrowful" even though it looks like the latter in the Georgian era typeface, where an "s" was rendered as an "f" -- could we change the word then to read, as was meant, "sorrowful" or do you wish, for the humour, to leave it as is?

    Thanks
