“Sooner she’s dead, the better”…

This is a list of some of those many persons wrongly informed, from even before Sherman Stonor 6th Baron Camoys’ murder (9 March 1976), of "Julia’s madness, insanity, dottiness”. The threatening rumour was, verbatim, “She is insane, mad, bad. The sooner she is dead and buried the better". Warming to the theme, the person defaming her continued, “Julia is quite dotty and could be dangerous…she must not be invited”.
