The Friday 17th March edition of the Nottingham Review contained the following editorial, ahead of the shortly forthcoming Lent Assizes:
We beg leave to inform our numerous and anxiously inquiring friends, that the Proprietor of the Review has received notice of Trial, which is expected will take place before a Special Jury early in the next week, but on what day we have no knowledge. We informed our readers a few weeks ago, an application had been made for a Rule to try the Cause in the County, and that Rule has been granted. We forbear making any reflections. We shall give a faithful Report of the Trial in the Review.
