"Martin Cunningham whispered:
- I was in mortal agony with you talking of suicide before Bloom.
- What? Mr Power whispered. How so?
- His father poisoned himself, Martin Cunningham whispered. Had the Queen's hotel in Ennis. You heard him say he was going to Clare. Anniversary.
- O God! Mr Power whispered. First I heard of it. Poisoned himself!" (U6.526)
