There was a patent medicine for pain and 'women's complaints' which consisted of cannabis and chloroform. Not sure how chloroform was contained in a tablet. Bleach powder and alcohol also make chloroform. However the post below seems to fully explain what happened. I had thought about this also.

Peter Baxter

It was on New Year's Day 1885 - not 1855.  The blazing fire - which had been burning in the front bedroom hearth for many hours when landlord Frederick Doggett was summoned at 0400 - is a clue.  So is the smell of the Condy's fluid which Mr Doggett detected in the room.  The fluid (a strong disinfectant) was used in an attempt to disguise the smell of burning rubber.  The chloroform was administered orally through a rubber enema or vaginal douche tube after Adelaide had subdued Edwin with a chloroform soaked cloth.  The tube was destroyed in the grate.  The brandy was used to disguise the smell of chloroform in the corpse.  She admitted to this many years later when Edward Baxter, Edwin Bartlett's former partner in his grocery business, visited her near Orleans - where she moved soon after the trial finished.  Adelaide was an illegitimate daughter of a French count, who paid for her representation by (later Sir) Edward Clarke.
