Margaret Fraser, accidental drowning

Yesterday afternoon, the body of Margaret Fraser was found in the Canal, near Hadagain.  She was a poor woman, and dealt in gingerbread and confections; and is supposed to have fallen in on her way from some of the country markets.  She had been amissing for a week or two.
