Promptly Ejected from the Station

STRANGE OCCURRENCE AT WINDSOR.

The passengers arriving at Windsor by a Great Western train on Tuesday morning were startled by the extraordinary behaviour of a man who, on quitting the carriage in which he had travelled from the Metropolis, strode up and down the platform in an excited manner, quoted Burns and Shakespeare, and declared that he would see the Queen, adding in somewhat forcible language that “every brick in the Castle belonged to him.” As the Marquis of Salisbury, who had been visiting her Majesty, and others were to proceed to town by the next train, the man was promptly ejected from the station and taken into custody by the police. He was evidently a great believer in the efficacy of the Royal “touch,” as he urged that if he could only see the Queen, “she would be sure to cure his head.”

The Nottinghamshire Guardian, Saturday 9 December 1893
