14th November 1816: The Home Secretary informs the Sheriff of Leicestershire about James Towle's appeal

Novr 14th: 1816.


I think it right to acquaint you that the Judges have unanimously decided, that the Objections taken against to the Indictment against William Towle [sic], upon his Trial, at the last Assizes for Leicester, cannot be supported, and that his Conviction upon that Indictment is good.

It is accordingly determined, after a full Consideration of all the Circumstances of this Case that the Sentence of the Law shall be carried into Effect on the Day, to which the Execution of this unhappy Man was respited by Mr. Baron Graham: viz. the 20th Day of this instant November.

I have the Honor to be,

[To] C. W. Pochin Esqr.
&c &c &c

This letter can be found at HO 42/155. Sidmouth mis-names James Towle, William.
