CLAIMS TO POSSESS
HEAD OF CROMWELL
Englishman Has What Appears
to Be Proof of Identity of
LONDON, June Cromwell's body,
after suffering various indignities at
the hands of the Royalists, was buried
at the foot of the gallows at Tyburn.
His head, however, after being above
ground for two and a half centuries,
now threatens; to become the center
of a discussion on? the desirability or
otherwise of a belated interment
Writing to the "editor of Truth, "A
Colonial and an Imperialist," says: "I
suggest that -it is time to reverently
bury this portion of the remains of
a very great Englishman, and I feel
certain that this portion will be shared
by our fellow -countrymen and women,
as also by Americans."— The writer
mentions that the head is in the cus
tody of Mr. S. F. Wilkinson, : 6T >Seal,
near Sevenoaks, and Truth,, comment-

ing on this, says that if it could be de
cided that the head in possession of
Mr. "Wilkinson belonged to the Pro
tector, the . suggestion yin the letter
would be supported by the whole Eng
lish speaking world. - y : .*
The -evidence of the head's identity
offered by Mr. Wilkinson, was complete
and convincing.; "? y .... .; -: :.
"In 1661." he said, "the body of
Cromwell was exhumed from its rest
ing place -in . Henry Vll.'s chapel in
Westminster abbey, and. the.head, to
gether with those" of llreton and Brad
shaw, struck off and impaled on pikes,
placed on the roof of Westminster
i hall. -yy :■,' .:':
"Twenty-five years later a sentinel
on the -ramparts saw the head fall
down during a storm. F^ hid it un
der his cloak, and taking it home, con
cealed it in his chimney. Owing to the
hue and cry that followed he did not
dispose of It,, but told his wife and
daughter about it on his deathbed?
"They sold it to a branch of the
Cambridgeshire Russells. who were
connected with Cromwell's family, four
Russells having married four Crom
welis. The last of the Russells to own
the head was Samuel, who is described
as being *a , very poor comedian.'
" "Samuel exhibited ij; to all comers in
Clare market at 2s 6d a head? He ran
into debt, however, to James Cox, a
rival showman, to whom he sold it* for
£118. Cox then disposed of it to three
men, all of whom died suddenly, and
the friend of the last survivor sold it
to my grandfather nearly a century
Then Mr. Wilkinson produced docu
ments, the most curious being the act
ual deed between Samuel -.Russell and
James Cox, in which the former relin
quished all claim on the head, prom
ising, in quaint legal phraseology, not
to interfere with Cox in the enjoyment
of the same. . ->.. y~-y
"I only got this five or six years
ago.'' said the guardian of the relic. "It
was sent to me by a lady, who said
that as I had the ; head I ought to have
the deed." ,y . :r<C> r-
y Then, with due solemnity, the grim
head of the lord protector itself was
produced??' Within an outer case of

casket, black with age, into which -it

son revealed a mass of red and black
silk, from which he took the grim head
of "the curse of Ireland." y
The brown-skinned head is still
pierced by the pike which bore it on
Westminster hall. The point, attenu
ated by rust and exposure, emerges
from the top of the skull slightly to the
right of the center. > ■ - . -.- :
The hair, which owes its present
light yellow color to the embalming
fluid, was cropped short by the roister
ing companions of Samuel Russell for
souvenirs of the dead. The embalming
was so excellent that the eyelids,
tongue and nose are still perfect. The
nose is flattened to the right side of
the face, presumably by the clumsy
headsman, who did not use a proper
block. Two teeth still remain in the
jaws, and—convincing evidence of the
skulls authenticity— famous wart
on the right eyebrow can still be traced.:
Otherwise the flesh is shrunken and ■
the skull looks small on that account.
Both the flesh and the wood of the
pikestaff are pierced by little worm
holes through the twenty-five years'
exposure on Westminster hall.
The casket is softly quilted inside.
Mr. Wilkinson is a reverent custodian
of the head of the great Englishman.
He places no obstacles in the way of
the historians and others who wish to
inspect the skull, but Carlyle, when
writing a story of Cromwell, went
rather too far. The 'Sage of Chelsea"
heard of the skull, but declined to go"
and see it, saying, "Let Mr. Wilkinson
bring it to me." . Needless to say. Car
lyle and the skull of Cromwell never
met. .; y: ?.. :■■;•.. .. ..-
Mr. Wilkinson has a death mask of
Cromwell, which has been measured
by experts and compared with the
skull, and the measurements coincide
-completely. He has a mass of docu
ments and other evidence which go far
to prove that the head is really that
of Cromwell, and. indeed, the links
in the chain of 250 years are wonder
Further Proof of Identity
A last piece of indirect testimony is
most interesting. y??-.
Just before Queen Victoria came to
the throne (the head then being in-the;
.hands .of Dr. Wilkinson, the present
owner's grandfather), a gentleman
brought his son for medical advice.

The doctor's assistant remarked on the
similarity hetween the shape of the
boy's head and that df %-omwell. The
boy's father replied, "No wonder. He
is a descendant of Cromwell."
This story was recalled by "Senex"
in a letter to the Times In December,
1874. - Four days later a letter ap
peared from Oliver. John Williams, who
said that -he * was * the boy who, forty
years earlier, had been taken to Dr.
Wilkinson. "My head was examined,"
runs . the letter, "by Dr.,; Wilkinson,
and compared with the skull of Oliver
Cromwell. My father' always said that
Dr. Wilkinson had received the- skull
from a maiden lady who, did not care
to have it in the house." ?

chased it from James Cox, the show
man. '- - ' \l l ■

sirable for the head, Mr. Wilkinson
smiled and said: "Why should I bury

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.. June
23. —Two boys, with an old red shirt,
during a terrific storm that swept over
the Berkshire hills today, flagged the
New York express and avoided what
might have been a terrible catastrophe.
Had the express train crashed into the
washout caused by the heavy rains
fully 300 New Yorkers, who have resi
dences here, might have been killed or
injured. The engineer had no chance
to see the washout because of a sharp
curve in the road.
i At the point where the rails were
| displaced the hills rise 500 feet The
rain poured down in torrents, carrying
everything before it. Houses were
swept down the hillside.
j A half miles above the Great Bar
rington station a torrent of water from
the hills rushed down like a mighty
cataract, carrying away everything in
its path. The heavy rock ballast of
the New York, New Haven & Hart
ford railroad was washed away. ;
I Just as the heavy laden Berkshire
express, that left the Grand Central
station at 3:30 p. m., with 300 passen
gers for Great Harrington, Stock
bridge, Lenox and other summer re
sorts in the Berkshire hills, came '
around the sharp curve at Pearl street
the engineer saw two boys wildly
waving a piece of cloth. It looked red"
to him and. he applied the emergency
brakes. The ' eight cars .in the train
