The doctor's said to be well known acquaintance was found dead in the doctor's cabinet.We have worked hard to try to find the reason of the suicide.On page 94 in a letter written by the said to be Dr.Jekyll to Dr. Lanyon Dr Jekyll states "Atmidnight, then, I have to ask you to be alone in your consulting room, to admit with your own hand into the house a man who will present himself in my name, and to place in his hands the drawer that you will have brought with you from my cabinet...'' It is possible that the post office may fail me, and this letter not come into your hands until to-morrow morning. In that case, dear Lanyon, do my errand when it shall be most convenient for you in the course of the day; and once more expect my messenger at midnight. It may then already be too late; and if that night passes without event, you will know that you have seen the last of Henry Jekyll.' " It is possible that the post office may fail me, and this letter not come into your hands until to-morrow morning. In that case, dear Lanyon, do my errand when it shall be most convenient for you in the course of the day; and once more expect my messenger at midnight. It maythen already be too late; and if that night passes without event, you will know that you have seen the last of Henry Jekyll.'' This letter tells us that Dr. Jekyll was expecting his death or disappearance.It is also stated in the letterthat the ingredients were just salts and a vile full of a blood red substance. "We believe the substance could have been some kind of poison when mixed with the salt" Said the chief investigator on the caseOn page 104 in a letter from Lanyon to Mr. Utterson he said that"He put he glass to his lips and drank at one gulp. A cry followed;he reeled , staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with injected eyes, gasping with open mouth; and as I looked there came, I thought, a changehe seemed to swellhis face became suddenly black and the features seemed to melt and alterand the next moment, I had sprung to my feet and leaped back against the wall, my arm raised to shield me from that prodigy, my mind submerged in terror.'O God!' I screamed, and 'O God!' again and again; for there before my eyespale and shaken, and half fainting, and groping before him with his hands, like a man restored from death there stood Henry Jekyll!" We find out in the letter that the small man who came to Lanyon's house was Mr. Edward Hyde. In the last letter known to be written by Henry Jekyll he states that "There was no mirror, at that date, in my room; that which stands beside me as I write, was brought there later on and for the very purpose of these transformations. The night, however, was far gone into the morningthe morning, black as it was, was nearly ripe for the conception of the daythe inmates of my house were locked in the most rigorous hours of slumber;.and I determined, flushed as I was with hope and triumph, to venture in my new shape as far as to my bedroom. I crossed the yard, wherein the constellations looked down upon me, I could have thought, with wonder, the first creature of that sort that their unsleeping vigilance had yet disclosed to them; I stole through the corridors, a stranger in my own house; andcoming to my room, I saw for the first time the appearance of Edward Hyde." This tells us that he transforms into Edward Hyde when he drinks this potion. After a few years he cannot stop the transformations and ends up being stuck as Edward Hyde. He locks himself away and when Mr. Utterson breaks into the cabinet and finds the dead Hyde he has also found the dead Henry Jekyll. Hyde/Jekyll killed himself to keep everyone from finding out hat he is the man Edward Hyde and the well known doctor Henry Jekyll.
