"The world to an end shall come, In eighteen hundred and eighty one"



Mother Shipton : prophet
This 15th-century prophet was quoted as saying "The world to an end shall come, In eighteen hundred and eighty one" in a book published in 1862. In 1873 it was revealed to be a forgery; however, this did not stop some people from expecting the end.
