Excerpt from A Brief Historical Account of the Lives of the Six Notorious Street-Robbers, Executed at Kingston: With a Particular Relation of Their Early Introduction Into the Desperate Trade of Street-Robbing, and Especially of Murter, and of Several Robberies Which They, and Others of Their Gang, Have Been Concern'd InSome are already fallen into the Hands of Justice; and three of the five that were executed last Sessions were of this Fraternity: And had they been all still loose, and at Liberty, I understand they had formed a Design, to use their own Words, that would have startled the whole Town. What it was, it seems they have not been ingenuous enough to discover, no, not at the Gallows; so that they have only given the Town a kind of a general Alarm, and, as it were, bid all honest People have a care, both of themselves and of their Houses; intimating, that there are still Hands enough in the Gang to prosecute the Villany they had concerted before, tho' so many of their Leaders have been taken off before it could be made ripe for Execution.It is not worth while to make imperfect Guesses at what this Coup d' Eclat this great Attempt might be, seeing there is no coming at a Certainty in that Enquiry, unless the Enquirer had been a Confederate, or that we had a Correspondence among them, which infernal Honour we cannot pretend to; perhaps a little time may bring it out at the Gallows, when other Crimes receive their Reward.In the mean time, it is some Surprize to the World, that this new Society of Robbers, more than any that ever went before them, at least in England, have been particularly mark'd with this infamous Character, that they are Murtherers as well as Thieves, and that they have been more bent upon Blood, than even the worst Gangs of Rogues among us have usually been.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
