A letter from the murderer
My dear Mr Editor,
I hope you will find the following correspondence most enlightening and present it to your loyal and sensible readers.
On Monday the Eleventh, to-day when I write it, I proclaimed justice. I have been most wrongfully dismissed by the ever-so-delightful government, my petitions to them as chaff in the wind. As it stood, I had no choice but to do what was correct, and claim my long-deserved reparations. I now trust that the jury will do the reasonable action and pronounce me "not guilty", as any who sees my plight will most certainly agree.
Best regards, J. Bellingham
