James Silver (police-constable): On Friday, the 20th of Jan., I was on duty in the neighbourhood of Charing-cross - about ten minutes before four o'clock in the afternoon I was on the right hand side, coming from Whitehall, near Mr. Gould, the fishmonger's - I heard the report of a pistol on the opposite side, which attracted my attention - I saw a gentleman reeling, with his left hand under his left side - I saw his coat on fire - he was near Mr. Tatham, the gunsmith's, on the opposite side of the street to where I was. ... [Proceedings of the Old Bailey 1674-1913: Daniel M'Naughten, 27th February 1843].
      [Note: M'Naughten was found not guilty, by reason of insanity. This was the origin of the 'M'Naughten Rules' applied in such cases ever since.]
