I do not pretend that I have led a blameless life, or that one fault justifies another, but the public in judging a case like mine should remember that the darkest life may now have a bright side
If my lips teach the public that men are made mad by bad treatment, and if the police are taught that they may exasperate to madness men they persecute and ill treat, my life will not be entirely thrown away.
I have outlived that care that curries public favour or dreads the public frown…let the hand of law strike me down if it will, but I ask that my story be heard and considered.
Ah well, I suppose it has come to this… Such is life!
I do not wish to give the order full force without giving timely warning but I am a widow's son outlawed and must be obeyed.
I fear it as little as to drink a cup of tea.
It's no use blaming anyone now.
But I am a widows son outlawed and my orders must be obeyed.
Such is Life [Executed by hanging.]
